I want to thank Nekter Juice Bar’s protein drink and the bag of frozen peaces in the freezer for the inspiration of this gem. It’s nearing the end of the week, so I’m running low on all my fresh groceries. I’m out of bananas, yogurt, and a ton of other staples that I usually love as clean-eating snacks.

When I opened the fridge, I spotted about 1/4 of a Nekter juice left, a bag of carrots, an open can of crushed pineapples, and a nectarine that ended up being un-ripe. So then I moved on to the freezer and spotted mangos and peaches, and this drink dawned on me. The perfect blend of sweet with a hint of spice, and this smoothie is creamy and delish, and a summertime staple!
