Nectarine, Raspberry Passion Smoothie

IMG_0761

These three fruits are some of my favourites. They are gloriously colourful, have exciting textures and taste so sweet. These fruits are the perfect combination of exotic and homely, making this smoothie a real treat.
These fruits are also so good for you that they will make you glow from within, giving you vibrant eyes, hair and skin. These fruits are packed with vitamin A and C, are rich in cancer-fighting antioxidants and provide you with a lot of fibre. The almond milk is high in vitamin D & E, providing you with healthy essential omega fatty acids, which are all good for radiant skin.
