Smoothies are a great breakfast option. They are filling, nutritious and quick to prepare. Exactly what I need during my busy mornings.
Last week I bought nectarines, thinking I would just eat them fresh. Then when I tasted the first one, I realised that they were a bit too hard and too acidic to enjoy fresh. So, I decided to make a smoothie with them instead.
Nectarines have very delicate taste so I decided to go for a simple combo paring nectarines with banana, plain yogurt and rolled oats. And just like I imagined it, the smoothie turned out delicious. I especially loved the fluffy thick texture. In case you didn’t know, oats make the texture of smoothies fluffier. So not only are they healthy in general, they also improve the smoothie in other ways.
Nectarines are low in calories and rich in fiber. They are also a good source of vitamin A, vitamin C, and potassium.
