I’m back! Sorry for that brief intermission. I’ve been doing finals work (all went well, I’m just glad they’re over) and I went home for a few days to get a little break for my summer classes started.
Welcome to Summer 2012! It’s hot. I’m taking a drawing class. And all I really want to do is make pie.
Instead, here’s a smoothie recipe that I amall about right now!
PAPAYA MANGO SMOOTHIE
Yields 2 servings
Adapted from Family Fresh Cooking
1 cup papaya, chopped
1/2 a Mango
4 frozen strawberries
1/2 an avocado
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk
Agave Nectar, to taste
Puree all ingredients, except agave nectar, in a food processor
Add Agave Nectar to taste.
If it’s not the constancy you want it, add a little ice and blend until mixture becomes thicker.
For as easy as this is, it’s a great, filling treat! I love all the smooth flavors-papaya, mango, and avocado-mixed with the sweetness of coconut and the tartness of the strawberries. All the fruit mixed together packs a big kick! Perfect for a sweet snack or an after dinner dessert.
For an even bigger kick, top with strawberry slices.
I’ve recently discovered papaya and how much I love it. It’s kind of like cantaloupe, but a bit more dense. It’s smooth and sweet like an avocado, but more fruity.
