Smoothie Sunday: Papaya Blueberry Smoothie
What do you do when you have a big half of a papaya left? Make another smoothie of course! I wasn’t entirely sure what fruit would go well with the papaya, but then I remembered I had some frozen blueberries in the freezer that needed to be used. The flavor combination worked pretty well, despite one being a tropical fruit and the other being an American wild berry. Like the papaya smoothie it still had a rather thick texture from the papaya, but the blueberries helped break it up a bit.
Papaya Blueberry Smoothie:
- ½ of a papaya; skin and seeds removed
- 1/3 cup blueberries
- 1 1.5 oz container (¼ cup) vanilla or blueberry yogurt
- ¼ cup orange juice
- 5 ice cubes
- ½ tsp lemon juice
- Sugar to taste
- Salt to taste
In a blender, combine the first 6 ingredients. Blend until smooth. Add sugar and salt to taste. Pulse until well blended. Pour into a tall glass and enjoy!
