I love making this drink in the summer with fresh nectarines. It is also really good made with fresh peaches. The buttermilk gives it a fresh and tangy flavor while the brown sugar disguises the fact you are using buttermilk!

Hubs walked into the kitchen as I was making this - uh-oh! The buttermilk carton was on the counter so I quickly hid it under the sink before he could see it. I knew if he knew there was buttermilk in it this smoothie would be doomed. I watched as he quickly drank the first glassful and I asked him to comment while I poured him a refill (this was about 30 seconds later). He said it was "peachy " (of course he MEANT "nectarine-y") and that there was "something odd about it - but in a good way." Only after he finished the last of this 2-serving recipe did I reveal there was buttermilk in the drink to which he quickly scrunched up his nose. And then he rated it four stars. I never saw him drink a smoothie that fast. I made this exactly as the submitter directed and threw a few ice cubes into the blender as well. Hubs said he appreciated that this wasn't so cold that it gave him an ice cream headache. Maybe that's why it went down in a New York Minute. Read More

I do like buttermilk in a smoothie but it was too dominant here and though I used sweet ripe nectarines their flavor did not come through as I was expecting. Because the recipe doesn't use frozen fruit or ice it was warm which was not appealing. I added a frozen banana after the fact which helped make it slightly icy and more refreshing. Ice cubes would dilute the flavor even more. I might make this again if I have buttermilk to use up but I would chop up the nectarines ahead of time and toss them in the freezer overnight cut the buttermilk in half and make up the difference with orange juice.

I would give it five stars but I didn't think that was fair considering that I changed the recipe some. I took CC's advice and chopped the nectarine up froze it and then used half OJ and half buttermilk. The buttermilk would have been overpowering if I had used the full cup. (and I love buttermilk!) So the recipe as is would be good but not something I make again. With those changes it is now my all-time favorite smoothie! Read More

I made this twice. The first time was good. The second time I put a couple of handfuls of ice in as the mixture was blending and it turned out GREAT! Read More

I was really surprised by how tasty this was! I'd make it again except I peeled my nectarines and I'm no good at peeling or even chopping nectarines so this drink took longer to prepare than I'd have liked. I also used homemade buttermilk (milk vinegar). Read More

This was AWESOME! I wasn't sure about is because I don't like buttermilk but it was really very good. I added ice and strawberries after trying to original and both where great! I really recomend this for a quick healthy snack! Read More

love buttermilk and this is great - no sugar needed. Does need to be well chilled. Other fruit can be used but prefer nectarines. Thanks..... Read More

This was great! It was a bit too sweet for me though so next time I'll cut down the sugar a little. However I didn't have buttermilk so I used some milk vinegar and maybe that makes a difference in the amount of sugar needed. Read More
