Sunny Nectarine Smoothie: A Fresh & Fruity Summer Sip


Summer time always has me craving smoothies and I love enjoying them with seasonal fruit! Nectarines are so juicy and full of flavor right now, which makes them perfect for starring in a nectarine smoothie recipe. It’s paired with dairy-free milk beverage and orange juice, for a lightly creamy, but still refreshingly sweet sip!

This recipe was originally shared with us by Pacific Foods way back in 2006! We've updated this cool drink post for your sipping enjoyment.
Serves: 1 to 2 servings
  • ½ pound fresh nectarines or peaches, pitted and cut into quarters (optionally peeled)
  • 1 cup dairy-free unsweetened plain or vanilla milk beverage
  • ⅓ cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar or your sweetener of choice
  • Ice cubes, as needed
  • Sliced nectarines or peaches and mint sprigs, for garnish (optional)
  1. Put the fruit, milk beverage, orange juice, and sweetener in your blender. Blend until smooth, about 1 minute.
  2. You can either blend in some ice for a thicker smoothie, or pour the smoothie over ice.
  3. Garnish the smoothie with sliced nectarines and mint sprigs, if desired.
Protein Pump: You can add 1 to 2 tablespoons of your favorite dairy-free protein powder, but add it first and then add sweetener to taste, if needed. Or, you can add 1 tablespoon almond butter. It adds healthy fats, a little protein, and a creamier finish.
