I love smoothies because you can use almost any fruit or vegetable that you have on hand to make something delicious and nutritious. I didn’t want to head out to the grocery store so I looked for ingredients I already had in the house. When bananas start to get too ripe I throw them in the freezer to use for smoothies breads etc..so that was ingredient #1 for my smoothie. I also had a sliced Papaya in the freezer…#2. The next ingredient was a ripe avocado #3, you may think…gross an avocado in a smoothie! Let me tell you avocados have nearly 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, potassium, Vitamin E, B-vitamins and folic acid. I also added organic yogurt from my favorite yogurt company Stonyfield. he last ingredient was honey, it gives it a little sweetness without adding tons of sugar.
- 2 frozen bananas (let defrost enough to take the peel off)
- 1 Papaya (seeds out and meat scooped out)
- 1 Avocado
- ½ cup yogurt
- 4 tablespoons of honey
- handful of ice
- Place all the ingredients into a bowl and use an immersion blender to mix until smooth or you can also place all ingredients into a regular blender and mix until smooth. Then ENJOY!
