Strawberry, cherry, and nectarine yogurt smoothie

Strawberry cherry nectarine yogurt smoothie

We went overboard at the farmer's market, and so have been drowning in fruit. Strawberries, cherries, nectarines, white peaches, apricots: the works. So what better way to eat all kinds of fruit at once than in a smoothie? No frozen bananas or coconut milk necessary--these smoothies only contain fruit and yogurt. They're so good.

This time I went for all the red fruit: strawberry, cherry, and nectarine. The nectarine is sort of red, right?

Mint would have been a great addition here, but I didn't think of it at the time. We do still have lots of mint growing in the side yard, though, so at some point it'll probably make a smoothie appearance. Maybe with pineapple? A mint pineapple yogurt smoothie sounds pretty delightful. Now, if only pineapple were hanging around at the farmer's market...

Makes 1 small smoothie, perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack.

Strawberry, cherry, and nectarine yogurt smoothie

2 handfuls strawberries
1 handful cherries
1 nectarine
3-4 large spoonfuls of plain yogurt/soy yogurt--maybe 2/3 cup

Trim the strawberries; stem and pit the cherries; slice the nectarine off its pit.

Put all your fruit and yogurt in a blender. Blend until smooth.

Pour into glass of your choice. Drink, with spoon assists as necessary.

How have you been eating all the amazing new summer fruit?

I love a good smoothie and all those summer fruits sound like an amazing combination. I love nectarines and peaches and they are finally making an appearance at the farmer's markets in the UK. :)

Sooo beautiful! I can't wait to get to the farmers market this weekend and see what we have now. Cold & rainy weeks haven't been so nice to our produce this spring. Mmm nectarines.

I am so thirsty after I spent last two hours baking...and now I see this. I am going to make it right now! I just bought nectarines today and I have the rest in the fridge. Looks so delicious... perfect timing! And yes I'm drinking this at 11:30pm. Haha!

I love going the smoothie route when I've overdone it a bit on the fruit purchasing also! sounds so refreshing.

So glad you guys like it! This weekend is supposed to get pretty warm here...perhaps several more smoothies should make an appearance. :)
