Nectarine, Cantaloupe & Orange Smoothie

Go orange with this ice cold refreshing smoothie that’s ready in minutes.

Cantaloupe and Orange Smoothie

Whether it’s flip flops or fuzzy slippers weather, a smoothie makes a refreshing snack or dessert.

Smoothies are especially delicious when made with enough ice so that it’s really really cold down to the very last sip.

The vibrant colors of fruit make smoothies look so appetizing too.

Here are some colorful smoothies you may like “Kiwi Berry Smoothie“, “Peach, Berry and Cream Smoothie“, and “Blackberry and Oatmeal Malted Smoothie“.

In this smoothie, the combination of nectarine, cantaloupe, orange and banana has a sweet and rich flavor.

And there’s also shredded coconut which adds more flavor and texture to the mix.

When making a smoothie there’s an order in which the ingredients should be added so that it turns out nice and creamy.

A rule of thumb is that liquids and soft ingredients go in first, and the harder ingredients go in last.

So for example to the blender jar,

  • First, add liquids such as juice, water or milk 
  • Second, add soft ingredients like yogurt, fresh (unfrozen) cut fruit and berries, or honey
  • Then add items such as frozen cut fruit and berries, vegetables or nuts
  • Lastly add the ice

When blending a smoothie, to avoid an air pocket from forming by the blade in the blender jar, there needs to be a good balance between the liquid and frozen ingredients (including ice).

For best results, serve this smoothie right away while ice cold.

Let’s check out the ingredients.

Notes

TIPS:

  1. Since the juiciness of the fruit can vary, if the mixture is too thick, add more water a little at a time.
  2. A rule of thumb is that liquids and soft ingredients go in first, and the harder ingredients go in last.
    So for example to the blender jar,
    • First, add liquids such as juice, water or milk 
    • Second, add soft ingredients like yogurt, fresh (unfrozen) cut fruit and berries, or honey
    • Then add items such as frozen cut fruit and berries, vegetables or nuts
    • Lastly add the ice
    When blending a smoothie, to avoid an air pocket from forming by the blade in the blender jar, there needs to be a good balance between the liquid and frozen ingredients (including ice).
