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.
