Tropical Lust Smoothie:
Half a pineapple, outer layer and core removed, cubed
2 Apples (sweet or tart)
2 Bananas (very ripe is ok)
1 Quart Strawberries, tops removed
Flesh of one mango, cubed (about 1C. if using frozen)
1/2 C. Cold water
Nectarine or peach (optional)
A few Ice Cubes (optional)
1 t. Cinnamon
I rinse all of the fruit thoroughly, cut and chop as needed and put everything into my Blendtec. My blender is the one piece of kitchen equipment that I can't live without and it was worth every penny. It'll blend pretty much everything I could possibly want to blend, including frozen bananas, with ease.
|This much fruit works out to two large servings.|
|Tropical Lust Smoothie|
2-4 Apples (tart or sweet)
2-4 Bananas (the riper they are the sweeter they are)
Any other fruit you have on hand: Strawberries, melon, blueberries, mango, raspberries, plums, nectarines, peaches, etc.
1/2 C. Soymilk (optional, can substitute water)
1 t. Cinnamon
Blend and serve!
Cake Batter Smoothie:
4-6 Very Ripe bananas
1-2 C. of Soymilk (depending on how thick you like it)
1-2 t. Cinnamon (to taste)
Agave Nectar (again to taste, but I use a few Tablespoons)
For this recipe you may want to start out with less soy milk and add more after tasting. Same thing applies for the cinnamon and agave. It's supposed to be fairly thick (like cake batter) and smooth. This recipe is not just a favorite for breakfast but also a great dessert when we have guests.
