Plums are a delight of Spring. Dark purple to golden yellow, their juicy, fleshy and somewhat uniquely sweet and tart flavor is unmatched in nature. Nothing quite tastes like a plum. I say that plums taste like sunshine! They are packed with fiber and loads of potassium, vitamin C, K… and sunshine!
When you have a big bowl of fruit that is getting too ripe…a smoothie or two is in order. I love making smoothies with unusual or very seasonal fruit- its a great way to get a flood of nutrients that are not always available fresh, all in one delicious cup!
Now that we are definitively moving into “smoothie season” I suggest you fill a freezer-safe Tupperware with your overly-browned bananas to have them at arms reach. Each week my browned bananas get broken into several pieces and frozen so that I am never at a loss for smoothie or frozen banana ice cream!
Spring Plum Smoothie
- 2 Cups coconut milk
- a handful of ice
- 3 plums, washed and de-stoned (pit taken out)
- one frozen banana (you can use a non-frozen one, but I find its smoother with a frozen one!)
- 1 tsp raw honey (or agave) if you’d like!
Blend & done!
Enjoy! xoxo Dana
