White Nectarine-Pineapple Punch

I’ve decided to add a little punch to my recent white nectarine kick. The white nectarines this summer have been so amazing I’ve been putting them down by the barrel–guilt free, of course, since they are full of wonderful benefits. Nectarines are full of vitamins and antioxidants that support the immune system, protect us from heart disease and harmful UV rays, and fight against carcinogenesis.

Don’t worry if you can’t find the white flesh variety. This refreshing punch would be just as delicious with yellow flesh nectarines, peaches, apricots, or pretty much any other sweet stone fruit. If you need a sweet sip to end the summer, I highly recommend this 100% raw refreshmint
