One of the signs of summer to me is all the fresh fruit that starts appearing in stores. Not to mention the fruit stands along the sides of the road during road trips and the great recipes using fresh fruit that start showing up in magazines and on Pinterest.

Blueberry Nectarine Vanilla Smoothie Recipe - perfect for quick and easy breakfast or lunch | StuffedSuitcase.comWhile walking into Safeway the other day, I was so excited to see a large display of nectarines. They’re one of our family’s favorite fruits, so I grabbed a bag and bought a few. I was already picturing how to use them in a yummy smoothie, one of my girls’ recent loves.

I picked up some Carnation Breakfast Essentials in Classic French Vanilla at Safeway to round out my smoothie ingredients. I already had some frozen fruit at home, but really wanted to incorporate the fresh nectarines. I decided that our frozen blueberries would be great with the nectarine and vanilla flavors.

By adding the Carnation Breakfast Essentials mix, you add protein, calcium, and vitamins for a nutritional drink. My girls loved this recipe and it took so little time. It really just takes throwing four ingredients into a cup and blending. Easy!

      Thank you Alicia! I just loved the color the blueberries gave it. We buy the jumbo bag of frozen blueberries at Costco, just in case you’re looking. :)
