ripe nectarine (chilled if possible)
fruit cut from seed in large pieces, skin on

(equals about a little more than a quarter of a medium to large size cantaloupe)
medium size orange (Navel or Valencia)
peeled (seeds removed if applicable) and cut into chunks
shredded coconut (sweetened or unsweetened)
In a blender jar, add fresh lemon juice, water, honey, plain yogurt, cut pieces of nectarine, cut pieces of cantaloupe, banana, cut pieces of orange, shredded coconut and crushed ice.
Blend on the smoothie setting until smooth and creamy. If the mixture is too thick, add more water a little at a time.
Do a taste test and add
more honey if needed.
Serve right away while ice cold. Garnish with shredded coconut
Since the juiciness of the fruit can vary, if the mixture is too thick, add more water a little at a time.
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).
