Ginger Nectarine Spritzer

Recipe by Danielle Wiens





: It’s nectarine season and that means buying them by the basket then wondering how you’re going to eat them all before they go bad in a few days. If that sounds like you then this recipe is here to help. Whenever I’m about to run out the clock on some fresh fruit, I blend it up with a little bit of water and sugar and freeze them into ice cubes. This recipe pairs sweet nectarines, with spicy ginger, and refreshing lime for the ultimate waste-reducing recipe. Recipe takes 4 hours total.


  1. 1

    Add the quartered nectarines, lime juice, honey, and flatwater to the blender. Blend until smooth.

  2. 2

    Strain the fruit puree through a fine-mesh sieve.

  3. 3

    Pour fruit puree into an ice cube tray. Let freeze, around 4 hours.

  4. 4

    Once the ice cubes are frozen, divide them between two glasses. Add a ginger slice to each drink. Top with sparkling water.
