There’s nothing better than a healthy refreshing smoothie to start your day. Smoothies are one of my favorite things in the world. They’re super quick to make, loaded with healthy goodness and easy to take with you wherever you want.
For this Nectarine & Avocado Smoothie, all you need is very simple fresh ingredients: seasonal nectarines, mango, avocado, spinach, unsweetened coconut water and Wholesome Organic Stevia®, to lightly sweeten things up.Loaded with nutrients, and naturally dairy-free & gluten-free, this Nectarine & Avocado Smoothie is the quickest way to fuel you up on busy mornings! Recipe by The Petite CookWhat I love most about this energizing concoction, is that is one of the few smoothies out there that doesn’t call for banana, which I adore by the way, but I know some of you don’t, so if you’re not a banana lover, this drink is perfect for you. Instead of banana, the avocado gives this smoothie its rich, creamy, delightful texture. Avocado is also the only fruit (yes, it’s a fruit!) that contains monounsaturated fat, which is the good fat our bodies need to function properly, and can also lower our bad cholesterol.

Additionally, avocados are also a great source of vitamins, magnesium, and potassium, and are full of fiber. All the good reasons to eat and drink more avocado!Loaded with nutrients, and naturally dairy-free & gluten-free, this Nectarine & Avocado Smoothie is the quickest way to fuel you up on busy mornings! Recipe by The Petite CookThis Nectarine & Avocado Smoothie is also free of refined sugar. Instead, I’ve used Wholesome Organic Stevia, which is Non-GMO, vegan & kosher. And there are lots of other good reasons to opt for it – unlike most of the commercial chemically derived sweeteners out there, it doesn’t contain nasty chemicals and it’s 100% organic, it’s deliciously sweet but has zero calories (great if you’re keeping an eye on your weight!), and can be used to sweeten up anything from coffee, tea, Greek yogurt, and of course, smoothies.
