Greens & Nectarines Protein Smoothie
Prep time
Total time
Recipe type: Breakfast, Smoothies
Serves: 1 - 2
  • 1 nectarine, pit removed, cut into chunks
  • about 1 packed cup spinach leaves, or other greens
  • 1 tablespoon flax seeds
  • 1 inch knob of fresh ginger, peeled
  • 1 - 2 tablespoons protein powder
  • small drizzle of honey if you like it sweet
  • 1 cup almond milk [or milk of your choice]
  • ½ cup Greek yogurt [I used plain low fat, but any kind will work]
  1. Be sure to follow the directions for your blender or smoothie maker.
  2. I place the ingredients in the Nutribullet, in the order given, screw lid on tightly, and shake it a bit to get things distributed evenly, place it on the base and process for about 2 to 3 minutes, taking it off the base after a minute or so, and giving it a shake - the flax seeds tend to get stuck in the bottom of the cup, and return it to the base for another minute or two.
  3. Serve immediately, adding a few ice cubes to the glass if you like it nice and cold.
