Sweetcorn, Nectarine, and Turmeric Oats Smoothie

How about a bit of bright yellow to lighten up your day!  This smoothie is definitely a bit different to my usual (you know…the green ones, I so love).  I am so used to concocting green smoothies but really wanted the challenge of this one.  It started off with me having some extra cooked corn, and then wanting other yellow fruits or vegetables but not banana…but seriously if you are into banana, banana would be great to add.  Anyway, cut a long story short, there was not a pineapple in sight at the grocery store, so I opted for some yellow fleshed nectarines and from there this nutritious, fibre packed smoothie was born.  It actually is quite versatile and has a few options which are really nice.  We had it one morning with plain lactose free yoghurt, topped it with almonds and a little maple syrup (honey would have been nice as well).  It immediately became a stunning breakfast smoothie.  Also, just to have it plain was equally as tasty.  The hubby added a dash of maple syrup, so that too, was an option … I guess with a bit of creativity, this smoothie has endless possibilities. 🙂

    You’re right…green is the color most people have become accustomed to when it comes to smoothies. Nice to see a change of color and a variety of suggested ingredients. Love the anti-inflammatory turmeric inclusion.

  2. Love this! I actually was allergic to pineapple for my whole life until I realized only last year that I’d grown out of it. Nectarines are a perfect substitute and I’ve never thought to put them in a smoothie. I’ll have to give it a try. -Deb
