This refreshing smoothie is a blend of papaya, banana, and yogurt and makes a satisfying part of breakfast or any time of day. Mix in frozen or fresh berries for a variety of flavors.


2 cups papaya chunks (fresh or frozen)
2 bananas (overripe, sliced)
1 cup plain low-fat yogurt
1 cup ice cubes


1.     Put all the ingredients in the blender.

2.     Put the lid on tightly. Turn the blender to a medium setting and blend until the ice is chopped and the mixture is smooth, about 1 minute.

3.     Serve right away or cover and refrigerate up to 4 hours.



  • One cup of low-fat milk, soy, rice, almond or coconut milk can be used instead of yogurt. 
  • Strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries can be used in addition to or instead of papaya.

Love this! I add a small amount of Splenda or sugar free cool whip. It gives it an extra kick of sweetness.

ice not needed Slice bananas and put in freezer and use frozen strawberries can be added while blender is "blending". I use 1% milk.or half that and half yogurt is good. I also add a bit of vanilla extract. Can add anything else you want.
