nectarines, pitted and quartered
banana, cut into pieces and frozen
orange, peeled and quartered
After reading the reviews and seeing that a few people were having issues with the orange pith, I decided to leave out the orange. Instead I increased the amount of orange juice to one and a half cups. I added the honey but wouldn't have needed to and next time I will leave it out as well.
This smoothie has a fabulous flavor, but my only complaint was that the pith of the orange didn`t blend wery well, so I felt the small parts in the smoothie. Or maybe I had to blend longer. But overall very good recipe with tender and fruity taste.
Very nice flavor. I have never tried a whole orange in a smoothie before. It's a perfect match with nectarine. My nectarines were very sweet, so I cut back on the banana which happened to also be very ripe/sweet, and omitted the honey. It was still quite sweet, so make adjustments according to the ripeness of your fruit. Unfortunately, my kids didn't like the 'bits' from the skin of the nectarine and the pith of the orange. Aargh! But that's kids for you. Thanks, Sarah-May, for sharing your recipe.
This was lovely. I used Stacy's organic nonfat vanilla yogurt and Dole's strawberry/banana/orange blend juice. I didn't add the honey only because I'm out right now. We really enjoyed this. The nectarine really made this smoothie extra tasty.
This is seriously one of the best smoothies I have ever made (and I've made several). LOVED the flavor of the nectarines! My nectarines and orange were very ripe and sweet and I used 6 oz. of yogurt. My daughter and I both thoroughly enjoyed this. Thank you for sharing this wonderful smoothie recipe, Sarah-May!
Perfect sweet/tart combination. I did not add the banana because my kids don't like the flavor, but instead added a cup of frozen strawberries. I added 1 nectarine and some leftover peaches. Unfortunately I didn't really measure anything, so it will be difficult to duplicate again, but it sure was good this time!
Really yummy. I didn't have an orange so I just omitted that. I didn't have vanilla yogurt so I just put plain with about 1-2 teaspoons of vanilla extract. I also put less honey, about a teaspoon. It was good. My husband loved it. I would've liked it colder. Maybe next time I'll put it in the fridge for a bit before drinking it.
Sarah-May, this is delicious! I had seen this on the RE a while back and was grocery shopping yesterday and saw some nectarines on sale, and I thought I would try it. Unfortunately I didn't have any oranges, so I used a mango instead, which is really good! I have to admit, I didn't really think I would like this, because I thought it would be too sour for me, but it wasn't! I just slurped down my second glass in 10 minutes. Yum!
