Homemade Smoothie : PapayaPineappleHoneydewMilk

*Due to confusion and wrong scheduling on the blog posting while i was away, this post, is supposed to be the first one to be published BEFORE the one HERE. :)

Many has wondered how some of the smoothies i made at home taste like. Some are downright scary (green) and some looked like baby's vomit. While the look of it might be intimidating, the taste, as they always say, will be the decider. After all, if something taste good, it will naturally be eaten again - despite how bad they look. So, aiming to educate and share, i am going to start reviewing the smoothies i usually make at home and will rate it so you will...err..have a "rough idea what it will taste like". I will start with the Papaya, Pineapple, Honeydew and Milk combo.
loose cut fruits from the local groceries store. Pricing is alright with good quality!
I placed a 4 slices of papaya (about 6inches each), 3 slices of pineapple (about 4 inches each) and two honeydew (about 4 inches) with half a cup of milk, and equal amount or slightly more water, cold.
Illustration purpose only. Please cut the fruits up. Blending without cover will splatter everything, everywhere. You been warned.

The consistency: Thick if no water is added. 1/2 cup of water is a good start and aim to get a consistent mixture .
The texture: Smooth.
The smell: Err...fruity with strong papaya smell.
The color: Could be mistaken for a strawberry smoothie
The taste: Sweet with strong papaya taste. Pineapple went missing and honeydew was subtle. It did taste a little icky if you leave it in your mouth for a while.
The Verdict: To decrease papaya and to increase pineapple and honeydew. To use more milk (1 cup instead of half) and skip the water.
Will I Try It Again?: YES. Watch out for it tomorrow!


  1. Sir. Is it okay to prep smoothie the night before for breakfast?

    1. Hi Nora, I would not suggest so. Fruits will oxidise if you leave it too long. At most, an hour and need refrigeration.
