Tropical Juice Smoothie

This week I have declared Smoothie week! As I wrote in my previous post Smoothies have now become a staple in my house, I have at least one a day! I enjoy both yoghurt, milk based smoothies and the fruit juice smoothie! After my delicious Mango, Banana, Passion fruit Yoghurt and Pistachio Smoothie, I had for lunch, in the afternoon I was getting a bit hungry.

As I had declared as a New Years Resolution to loose weight, I decided on a fruit juice Smoothie. Again this juice smoothie oozed of Australian Summer Fruits and nuts just topped off the perfect refreshing Smoothie. It felt like I was in Far North Queensland, sipping a delicious, refreshing smoothie. My husband arrived home from work as I was making the smoothie and was insisting that I remove the skin from the nectarines! He couldn't understand that you could eat fruit with the skin on! That's probably because the only fruit he will eat is Mangoes and the occasional apple, or strawberries and bananas in a smoothie. He thought my Tropical Juice Smoothie looked disgusting!

Without Further ado here is the recipe, don't be afraid to add different fruits.

Tropical Juice Smoothie

1/4 of rockmelon(USA readers I'm certain you call it Cantaloupe)
2 red flesh nectarine
Juice of 2 oranges
1 banana
Small handful of crushed nuts
 A handful of ice cubes
I added a little bit of tropical juice (you can also add water)

Method: Cut rockmelon, cut nectarines (leaving skin on), squeeze the juice of 2 oranges, break the banana into smaller pieces, add the nuts and ice cubes and additional juice or water if needed. Enjoy this tropical delight xx
