Summer Smoothie



Summer Smoothie
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup pineapple, peeled and cored
  • 1/4 cup ripe papaya, peeled, seeded, and chopped
  • 1/4 cup mango, peeled and cubed
  • Honey to taste
  • 1/2 cup ice
Place the juice, fruit, and honey in a blender. Blend on high speed for 30 seconds. Add the ice and blend until smooth. Makes 1 serving.
I like to add some personal touches to this recipe that my husband doesn't always fancy . . . for example, I like to use Splenda instead of honey. But then I am a girl made out of Splenda! Also being my life is busy busy, I find myself using frozen mango and papaya and throwing in a half scoop of some vanilla protein powder. Doing these things will shift the calorie intake just a bit, but not that extreme—it just gives you a bit more protein to keep you fuller longer, perfect for that life on the go!!! Did I mention how oh so fab this smoothie is for those hot spring and summertime days!!??
Reminder: If you do decide to use the frozen fruit, you will not need to add any ice for it will be frothy enough from the frozen fruit. Enjoy!
