Cacao-Rum-Nectarine Smoothie

I've been avoiding turning on the air conditioning in my house this summer, and trying to deal with the heat through lots of cool liquids.  An overabundance of fruit from a friend who works farmers markets has really come in handy!  My latest smoothie is a rum-coconut-chocolate concoction that allows me to close my eyes and envision a tropical destination.   

I cut the fruit into halves and froze in gallon bags.  I prep a smoothie each morning and leave it in the refrigerator.  When the heat gets to me a couple hours later, all I have to do is add milk and blend.  The slightly frozen fruit gives my smoothie a shake like consistency and keeps the drink cold as I sip. 

Rum-Cacao Nectarine Smoothie

Fill up canning jar with frozen Nectarine halves (for me that's about three or four)
3 Tbsp finely ground unsweetened Coconut
1 Tbsp Cacao Powder
1 Tbsp Hemp
1 Tbsp Flax Seed
1 Tbsp Maple Syrup
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
1/4 tsp imitation Rum Flavoring
Almond Milk to fill glass

Blend all with stick blender.  Drink while semi-frozen for a slurry-like consistency.
