Sweet Corn Smoothie

Author Notes

Inspired after reading the soup and cream corn F52 entries, I thought, why not a refreshing smoothie. The taste of sweet corn with a blend of tropical fruits makes a perfect breakfast or pick me up any other time of day. Hmmm, I am thinking a little Coconut Rum might add a special touch, although I’ve not tried that, yet! —lapadia

  • Makes about 5 cups
  • Note, I used a full fat yogurt and coconut milk
  • 2-1/2 cups fresh sweet corn kernels (3 medium cobs)
  • 1 vanilla bean, split and scraped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
  • 3/4 cup honey flavor Greek yogurt

In This Recipe
  1. Shave off the corn kernels - position the cob on the end of a bowl and run a knife down the sides to get all the kernels and its juice.
  2. Add the vanilla bean - split lengthwise and with the tip of a knife scrape the seeds from the bean into the bowl. Add grated ginger. Place into a blender.
  3. Add the honey, coconut milk, pineapple, mango, banana and honey. Blend till smooth. Taste for sweetness and add more honey, if needed.
  4. Add ice cubes and blend.
  5. Serve in a chilled glass - optional, grate a little fresh nutmeg over the top.
