End of Summer Smoothie


Don't let those last, delicious summer stone fruits go to waste. Here's our recipe for a killer Nectarine Smoothie. Creamy with coconut, gorgeous, pale peach in color, icy good on those final dog days of summer. It really can't be beat. Slurp, smile, sigh! Heaven for your upcoming Labor Day weekend. Or better yet, come spend the weekend with us and we'll indulge your senses even more.


2 ripe nectarines (peaches, if you prefer)
1frozen banana
4 chunks of fresh coconut 
6 ice cubes
1/2 cup coconut water
Dash of cinnamon
Drizzle of honey (you can also use a fresh date, or date sugar)
Bee pollen

serves 2

Mix all ingredients in a blender. Blend on high until everything is smooth and creamy. If you would like to make this a power shake, feel free to add whey protein powder or a protein powder of your choice. Just make sure you are aware of whether or not your powder already contains a sweetener such as stevia, etc. Top with bee pollen and serve.
