London Style Tropical Fruit Smoothie

12 London Style Tropical SmoothieA nice surprise I found at Harvey Nichols’ Fifth Floor Café in London were the fresh fruit smoothies.  I chose their Tropical Smoothie, which oozed with freshly pressed (or squeezed, as we Americans say) pineapple, papaya, mango, and coconut.  The balance was perfect and yields the most luxurious color!  To mirror this at home, I recommend the following free recipe:

Super Simple Tropical Breeze

1/3 c papaya nectar  (or 1 c papaya chunks)

1/3 c pineapple juice (or 1 c pineapple chunks)

1/3 c mango nectar (or 1 c mango chunks)

¼ c coconut milk

Blend with 2-3 large ice cubes until smooth.  Makes 1 serving.

KISS Tips:  Fruit chunks work far better than juices for a thick, fruity smoothie that doesn’t even need the ice!  Add some spiced rum and garnish with a tiny paper umbrella and fresh fruit chunks, and you’ll feel as though you’re sipping on the shore of some exotic island, rather than in your own kitchen.
