Nectarine Superfoods Smoothie

Nectarine Superfoods Smoothie

Smoothies are my daily drink for radiance and better health! I like to pack a ton of organic leafy greens, fruits, superfoods, and essential oils into my smoothie blends so I can feel great! If you love smoothies and superfoods too then you are going to enjoy making this smoothie. It has a delicious blend of juicy organic nectarines, frozen banana, almond milk, baby spinach, spirulina, dates and wild orange essential oil. This fantastic smoothie will keep you energized for hours!

 

One of my favorite additions in smoothies is superfoods like nutrient-dense spirulina. If you have never tried spirulina you should. This wonderful superfood is a blue green algae that grows in fresh water lakes around the world. Spirulina is 60-70% protein, contains high amounts of chlorophyll and plant based iron too. In addition spirulina has carotenoids, vitamins B1, B2, B6, E, and K, minerals, enzymes, phytonutrients, and fatty acids that all help you maintain vibrant health.

 

I also like using wild orange essential oil in this smoothie because I like the yummy flavor, fragrant aroma, and extra benefits that it adds to my recipe. I really love the smell of wild oranges! Wild orange essential oil makes me feel happy and energized whenever I smell its beautiful fragrance!

 

The essential oil I used in this recipe is cold pressed from the orange peel. If you want to find out more about how to use pure essential oils in your life for wellness, feel free to email me with questions or to schedule a free essential oils phone consultation at aharmonyhealing@gmail.com.

2 cups organic baby spinach (rinse and drain off water)

  3. It’s crazy that I used to not like anything that was too green…but once I had a smoothie that was not only great-tasting but that also gave me a huge boost of energy, I was forever changed!

    I learned something new, today! I didn’t know that essential oils could be used in food. I thought that they were only for aromatherapy. Great information shared! Thank you!!

    We are lucky in Edinburgh here in Scotland to have a local supermarket that stocks organic vegetables and a community greengrocer that sources from local smallholders.

    But overall I think it is a terrible indictment of ‘advanced’ societies that once we are educated about food, that we walk around the junk in the supermarket like we are crossing a minefield.

  6. I love smoothies! I was curious to see the ingredients on this one that make it so *not* the colour of nectarines. 😉 Lots of great nutrition packed into one meal!

    I have to admit, it’s strange to see blue green algae as an ingredient. I’ve heard of spirulina for years, and I know it’s really good for you. But we have some kind of blue green algae on most of our lakes in Alberta now, which is highly toxic, so we can’t go swimming or even wading. I don’t know what the difference is, but it gave me a start, because I’d forgotten spirulina was also a blue green algae.

  7. I have to give this a try!

    My experiences have been hard. I have to hold my breath and close my eyes with certain smoothies. This one is rich and green, which is my favoriate color. I have found a place in the city, that has all oils and things of need.

    My prayer is the next time you give us a smoothie. Think for us who have diabetes 2. I want to cure it from natural ways. That is a huge need in America. There are us who have no weight issues and have diabetes 2. This is something I am supporting all the way.

    Yet, all you help is greatly appreciated from this fan!

    • William I hope you enjoy my recipe and you will not have to hold your breath to drink it! Just substitute blueberries for the nectarine and banana and use a bit of stevia to sweeten if needed. I have many recipes on my site that you can try so you can eat well as a type 2 diabetic. Take a look and see what you may like.

  8. The recipe sounds wonderful Shelley, I wish I didn’t have such a thing about drinking green stuff. I have no problem with vegetables so I can’t for the life of me figure out where that comes from. Anyway, your recipes are always so good I’ll try to over my “thing” and give it a go.
