Units Scale
  • 2 frozen bananas, peeled before freezing
  • 2 cups chopped papaya (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (optional)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 to 1 cup coconut milk


  1. Add frozen bananas, papaya, maple syrup (optional), vanilla extract, and coconut milk to a blender.
  2. Blend the ingredients until smooth and creamy. I recommend using a blender with a tamper (a stick that is inserted into the center) to push the ingredients toward the blades while blending. This helps you use less coconut milk, which creates a thicker and creamier consistency.
  3. Pour the smoothie into glasses. If desired, add your choice of toppings. Enjoy!


  • *Use frozen overripe bananas. Ripe bananas have yellow peels with brown spots all over. Remove the peels before storing the bananas in a ziplock bag or container inside the freezer. They will keep fresh for 2-3 months.
  • Optional smoothie add-ins: protein powder, greens, almond butter, chia seeds, cacao powder, etc.
  • Nutrition information below does not include maple syrup since it is an optional ingredient.
