Nectarine and Pear Smoothie

This is a lovely smoothie and not too difficult to make. I love the combination of bananas, nectarines and pears and it is very healthy, being absolutely packed with fibre, antioxidants and vitamins. You can use peaches or apricots instead of nectarines if you prefer. Just make sure that the fruits are organic and ripe.

You will need a blender or a food processor to make this smoothie.
