Hawaiian Smoothie

WebMD Recipe from EatingWell.com

Hawaiian Smoothie

For the best taste and color, use a red-fleshed Hawaiian papaya for this exotic, lip-puckering taste of island summer. Papayas are loaded with papain, a digestive enzyme, so this smoothie is a good dessert to settle stomachs after a substantial meal.

This Recipe Is:
Ingredients
Prep: 10 minutes | Total Time: 10 minutes
  • 1   cup
    chopped fresh pineapple
  • 1/2   cup
    chopped peeled papaya
  • 1/4   cup
    guava nectar, (see Ingredient Note)
  • 1   tablespoon
    lime juice
  • 1   teaspoon
    grenadine, (see Ingredient Note)
  • 1/2   cup
    ice
Instructions
  1. Place ingredients in the order listed in a blender. Pulse three times to chop the fruit, then blend until smooth. Serve immediately.

 

Tip
Ingredient Notes: Grenadine is a red syrup (originally flavored with pomegranate juice) used to color and flavor drinks. Look for it in the bar-mix section of your supermarket. Guava nectar is available in most markets, with the juices or in the Latin American section.
