A nectarine kale banana green smoothie is a delicious vegan recipe for breakfast or for any other time of day. It takes about 15 minutes to prepare and makes 4 or more 12-oz. servings.

We each have two or more 12-oz. glasses of a vegan smoothie for our breakfast (or any other time of the day), so we usually completely fill the large container of our Vita-Mix high speed blender. If you wish to make a smaller amount, cut the recipe in half.

Wash the nectarines and cut into sections so you can remove the pits, and place the cut pieces in the bottom of the blender container.

Wash and clean the fresh kale, and add to the blender container until it is 3/4 full with the fresh, frozen or cooked greens, peel 2 of the bananas, and add the bananas to the blender container, forming a bowl in the center of the bananas for the flax seeds and stevia so that the seeds don't touch the sides of the container, and cover with a third peeled banana.

Add the ice if the kale is fresh, or water if the kale is frozen, cover, and run the blender at high speed until the ingredients are smooth, using the tamper as required.

While the blender is still running at high speed, add any remaining greens, extra bananas, nectarines and/or ice or water through the hole in the cover to fill the container and achieve the desired consistency of the smoothie.

Pour into glasses and serve with a straw. Enjoy!

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
