Smoothies are hugely popular in my house…as they are in many homes across America! I mean, what’s not to love? They’re healthy, tasty, and one of the most refreshing treats you can give to yourself and your niños. My boys love them! The explosion in popularity, I like to credit to my lovely cultura. Using traditional and delicious Latin ingredients, like papaya and mango, these delicious smoothies are an excellent meal any time of the day; for breakfast they energize and they’re also perfect as a filling snack.
Loaded with vitamins and antioxidants, the best part about these batidas is how easy they are to make (just blend!) and how easy it is to sneak in nutrient-rich greens, like avocado. My secret is in mixing and matching ingredients for the yummiest flavor. Here’s how you too can create a perfect Latin-inspired smoothie.
