Pawpaw Fruit Smoothie

Just this weekend I tasted pawpaw fruit for the first time.  And I loved it!  So of course, in addition to eating them with a spoon straight out of their peels, I had to try a pawpaw smoothie.  This fruity-sweet smoothie was delicious!

Ingredients:

  • one ripe pawpaw (seeds and peel removed)
  • 5-6 mint leaves from my mint plant 
  • approximately 1/2 cup of orange juice
  • approximately 1 cup of frozen berries (strawberry, blueberry, blackberry, and raspberry mix)
  • approximately 1/2 cup of spinach leaves
  • three ice cubes
  • and water to the fill line

I don't really measure my smoothie ingredients as I just throw the items into the cup by handfuls. You can adjust the amounts based on your mood as I do.

The pawpaw created the most silky and creamy smoothie I've ever made. I completely understand why people choose to make pawpaw ice cream. I may have to try that soon.

I love my NutriBullet and feel better when I have fruit or green smoothies on a regular basis.  You can read my NutriBullet review on ReviewThis!

Sun Nurseries is where I purchased and tasted my first pawpaw. You can read about that adventure here. You will also find a little blurb, and a link to follow, about high level of vitamins and minerals found in pawpaws.

  2. I love my NutriBullet too! I'm so glad you reviewed it so I would know exactly what I needed. Otherwise, I would have continued to struggle with my blender for smoothies. I checked after I read your article on PawPaws and I cannot get them around here. Otherwise, I would definitely be having a PawPaw Smoothie today. That is something else we must do when I come for my visit
