I never think of nectarines. Maybe it’s because the grocery store always seems to have bins and bins of the nectarine’s relative, the peach. But for the nectarine there’s maybe a half bin set aside.

Don’t get me wrong – I do love peaches. I have to admit, though, I could do without the fuzzy skin when I’m eating them.

Which brings us to nectarines. A juicy, ripe nectarine tastes just like a peach – minus the fuzz. Mmmmm.

Of course, when you’re blending your fruit fuzzy skin doesn’t matter much. If you can’t find nectarines in your grocery store, just swap it out for a peach instead.

Health Benefits

Nectarine

Nectarines are low in calories – one large nectarine has fewer than 70 calories – and are packed with many health promoting compounds, mineral, and vitamins.

They are a great snack (or great in a smoothie!) for losing weight because they make you feel full with very few calories.

Nectarines are packed with the antioxidant vitamin C, and are a great source of vitamin A and fiber. They contain very high levels of potassium – almost 10 percent of the recommended daily amount.

Blueberry

Blueberries are loaded with vitamin K, manganese, vitamin C and fiber. They are often ranked as having one of the highest antioxidant capacities among all fruits, vegetables, spices and seasonings. In addition to their amazing antioxidant benefits, they also are high in cardiovascular, cognitive and eye health benefits.

Flaxseed

Flaxseeds will give your smoothie an omega-3 fatty acid, fiber, and protein boost.

Omega-3 fatty acids promote cardiovascular and immune system health, brain and joint function, soft skin, and a lot more. Fiber supports a healthy colon, helps to regulate blood sugar, and makes you feel full for longer. When you feel full for longer you may snack less. This can help a lot when you are trying to lose weight.
