    blancpage's Note:

    Just had a root canal and having other toothache problems so it's difficult for me to chew solid food, including fruits. I recently had purchased a can of Safeway brand Tropical Fruit with Pineapple and Passion Fruit Juices. The ingredients read: pineapple, red papaya, yellow papaya, pineapple juice, water, sugar, passion fruit juice, banana puree, citric acid. I emptied the can with the juice into a freezer-safe container and froze overnight. I let the frozen fruit thaw in the fridge for a few hours and then ran the container under cool water for a about 30 seconds to break up the mass of frozen fruit from the edges of the container and then cut it up with a plastic pancake turner. I used a square-shaped container and broke the frozen fruit up into 4 large pieces so it would fit into the blender. Bf bought me fresh strawberries so chose to use those over the frozen ones I had. I always keep sliced, frozen bananas on hand in the freezer. The water in the recipe is necessary for the blending and it doesn't taste too watered down, and I needed just about 1/2 cup. The honey is for a little added sweetness. This makes two very large servings. This turned out thick, but drinkable. Please let me know how you like my recipe. It would make a great breakfast, snack, or even dessert! Prep time doesn't include freezing time for the fruit.

      This was indeed a tropical smoothie. I wasn't going to make this today but at the last minute decided to so I didn't have time to freeze the can of fruit, Instead I used frozen strawberries and frozen banana. I tasted it after adding 6 and decided to double up the strawberries. I also didn't need the water or honey as it was sweet and thin enough. Thanks for a good breakfast.
