Author Notes:
This fruit smoothie is sweet and tart, thick and creamy -- a frozen banana is the key!
garlic and zest

Serves: 2

Ingredients

  • 1 overripe banana, frozen
  • 1/2 cup frozen mango pulp or 1/2 cup chilled mango, cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple pulp or 1/2 cup chilled pineapple, cut into chunks
  • 1 blood orange, peeled and cut into chunks, reserve a small piece for garnish
  • 1 chilled kiwi, peeled and cut into chunks, reserve a small piece for garnish
  • 1/2-3/4 cups cold water

Directions

  1. Combine the fruit and fruit pulp in a blender. Add 1/2 cup water and blend to puree. If mixture is too thick add additional 1/4 cup of water and continue to blend until fruit is smooth. Pour into glasses, garnish and serve.
  2. If you're using fresh pineapple and mango instead of the frozen pulp, make sure its ice cold.
