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!
