This is the week I discovered that a whole, perfectly ripe nectarine is a revelation in a smoothie. I’m also on a carrot juice bender, so this smoothie was inevitable.
Even the chickens are getting to enjoy all the carrot juice we have been drinking by gobbling up the leftover carrot pulp.
one frozen banana, chopped
one ripe nectarine, halved and pitted, skins on
3/4 cup carrot juice
thin slices of peeled ginger, to taste
Blend until smooth.
If you are juicing carrots at home, you can juice the ginger with the carrots. Either way, just use a hint of ginger so it doesn’t overpower the nectarine and carrot flavors.
