Smoothies have been on Colombian tables forever. We add milk or not, depending on personal preference, and we use a variety of high fiber and sweet fruits to enhance the flavor and texture of the smoothie. This makes for a complete fruit serving for a day served in such a delicious way that kids can enjoy without knowing it is loaded with vitamins. We actually give smoothies to babies in their bottles after they start eating fruit.


  • 1 banana, sliced
  • 1 cup diced papaya
  • 1 cup diced pineapple
  • 1 cup chopped ice
  • 8 mint or spearmint leaves


Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Serve immediately.
