Nectarine Smoothie

I was away so much in May that I never tried a recipe of the month. This is my remedial attempt, i.e. it will count as the May recipe, rather than the June one.

The idea is pretty simple - just a couple of nectarines (peeled and diced), plain yogurt (I like the Greek style), and a half a teaspoon of almond extract. The almond extract is what makes this count as an actual recipe. I suppose you could use milk or soy milk instead of the yogurt for a thinner result and you could add sweetener, but the nectarines were plenty sweet themselves.

My verdict is that this was just okay, not really worth the hassle of peeling and dicing nectarines. I think I'll stick to smoothies made with berries or with frozen fruit, which are less of a pain in the neck. The almond extract didn't really contribute enough to elevate this to the "must keep" repertoire.
