Summer Fruits photo by Andrew HackettPeaches and nectarines have a fairly short season, so I like to use them in many different recipes whenever I can. Paired with tropical bananas and pineapple, they blend up to make this delightful smoothie ripe with the flavors of summer. And if the great flavor isn't enough, they offer a surfeit of vitamins and minerals that contribute to vibrant health. Makes about 4 cups.

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 2 large bananas, frozen and diced
  • 2 large white nectarines, pitted and diced
  • 2 cups pineapple
  • 3 cups leafy greens, such as spinach
  • Water to taste

Directions
Blend all the ingredients together until smooth. Pour into two 20 oz glasses and enjoy.

Eco Tip

Lower your thermostat temperature in winter and raise it in summer. In winter, set your thermostat to 68 degrees or less during the day (and wear a sweater) and 55 degrees or less at night (and add an extra blanket). Wear less or use a fan instead of air-conditioning on all but the hottest summer days. When you must use air-conditioning, set your thermostat to 78 degrees or more.  More tips...
