Batido Smoothies

Prep time: 10 minutes
Makes: 4 Servings
2 cups papaya chunks (fresh or frozen)
2 cups bananas (overripe, sliced)
1 cup plain low-fat yogurt
1 cup ice cubes

Put all the ingredients in the blender.
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.
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.
Freeze banana slices and add while blending to chill the drink even more!
