OK, I’ll admit this is more of a milkshake than a smoothie since there’s no yogurt and several scoops of ice cream.  But hey, I call it as I see it, and this is a smoothie. I think they should teach milkshake-making in culinary schools, if they don’t already then y’all need to call me to teach it.

For 2 small servings

  • 2 cups strawberries, washed
  • 1 cup milk
  • about 1 1/2 cups chocolate ice cream

Hull and roughly chop the berries.  Add the berries to a blender.  Add the ice cream and half the milk.  Pulse the blender to combine the ingredients, add more of the milk to reach the desired consistency.  Serve immediately.

1/2 papaya, cubed

1/2 cup raspberry yogurt

1/2 cup milk

1 cup crushed ice

Enjoy this as breakfast or to cool off in the afternoon.  The sweeter and riper the papaya, the better this smoothie will taste.  You can add honey or agave if you like, I found this particular papaya didn’t need any help.  The yogurt gave enough support.

Papaya is supposed to help you lose weight, but you have to eat it in the morning and then nothing else for at least 2 hours.  I have no proof that it works but they are delicious.

If you’ve never had papaya, try this smoothie!
