Trio Smoothie



Smoothie is a Blended and sometimes sweetened beverage made from fresh fruits and sometimes may contain chocolate / peanut butter. It is pronounced as smoothy.
  In some crushed ice, frozen fruit, honey or some syrup can also be added. These are having a thicker consistency like milk shake. Milk, yogurt or ice-cream can be added.
I made this smoothie purely with fruits; there are no extra additional supplements.
 I used only three ingredients, so named it as Trio smoothie.
It was a filling and healthy smoothie best for breakfast.
I used papaya , banana and apple to make this smoothie. Papaya gives it a vibrant color and flavor.

 Just a short note on the nutritional facts of the fruits used
Papaya:
 Papaya is a good source of provitamin A carotenoids , vitamin C , B , lycopene , dietary minerals and dietary Fibre. It is a cost effective and tropical fruit.
Apple :
 The proverb “An apple a day keeps the doctor away” reveals its health benefits.
 It is a good source of dietary fiber , vitamin C , phytochemicals and antioxidants.
Banana :
Banana is an excellent source of vitamin B6, soluble fiber , vitamin C , manganese and potassium.

 Requirements :
Ripe Papaya – 1 cup
Apple – ½ cup
Ripe Banana – 1
Method:

Add the chopped fruits into a blender and grind into fine with little water.

Pour into glasses, chill and serve.
Trio smoothie is ready to serve.

Note :
Honey can be added for extra sweetness.
If giving for kids , dilute with more water.
