Green Smoothie With Cherimoya
Have you ever tried a green smoothie with cherimoyas in it before? They are grown in warmer regions of the world. In the United States, they can be found in California and Florida. If you’ve never had one before, give them a try. They are absolutely delicious!
Cherimoyas have a creamy texture, and their flavor is reminiscent of a combination of apples and bananas. When you are choosing cherimoyas to use in a green smoothie, make sure that you choose ones that are fully ripe! When you cut into a ripe cherimoya, the skin should just peel away, and you will need to dig the seeds out. It can be a bit of a pain in the butt to prepare them, but the reward will be well worth the effort.
I think that cherimoyas pair well with apples, which is why I have included apples in this green smoothie. When you’re selecting leafy green vegetables to use with cherimoyas, make sure to choose ones with a mild flavor. Certain greens, like dandelion greens or kale, will overpower the delicate flavors of the fruit.
If you are interested in giving a green smoothie with cherimoya in it a shot, here is a great recipe for you to try. Here are the ingredients you’ll need to have:
- 1 cup cherimoya (about 1 medium fruit), peeled and deseeded
- 1 medium apple, cored
- 1 medium frozen banana, peeled and sliced
- 1 medium carrot, chopped
- 1 medium head romaine lettuce, chopped
- 8 ounces filtered water
Each of these ingredients will need to be added to your blender one at a time and blended together until smooth. This recipe makes one serving of smoothie, but you can easily double the ingredients if you need too. Here is some relevant nutritional information for this smoothie:
