This is a copycat recipe of Smoothie King's Lemon Twist smoothie with strawberries. I haven't tried SK's banana lemon twist, but I assume that half a banana substituted for the strawberries would be about right.
- 1⁄4 cup lemon juice
- 1⁄4 cup papaya nectar or 1⁄4 cup papaya, chunks
- 1 cup water
- 1 1⁄2 cups ice
- 1⁄4 cup turbinado sugar
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1⁄4-1⁄2 cup frozen strawberries
- Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until slushy.
- Serve and enjoy!
Waayyyy too heavy on the honey and sugar. Also really tough on the blender w/ all that ice.
This is most assuredly NOT the Smoothie King smoothie it claims to be. Waaaaaaaay to much sugar is added to the drink, including an overpowering amount of honey. Also, while the ingredient list is correct, according to the SK description, the ratios are way off. And I would think twice before putting that much ice in a home blender. This recipe is not what it claims to be, not even close to the original Smoothie King favorite.
My daughter and I enjoyed the fresh and tangy taste of this smoothie. I used fresh mango instead of papaya. Thanks for posting, Spectatrix Roxygirl
