    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.
