Yellow Fruity Frothy. Banana. Citrus. Ginger. Pear. Froth.

Thirsty for a light, hydrating and energy enzyme infused drink? I was. Today I skipped the smoothie and definitely skipped any pre-packaged juice and I made myself a frothy.

Yellow Fruity Frothy. My ingredients: tart white grapefruit, zingy lemon, sweet bosc pear, spicy ginger and a creamy ripe banana. But the secret to making a frothy is not just in what you put in it, but how you make it...

Frothy Secrets. A frothy is not a smoothie and it's not simply juice. It is somewhere in between. First, you choose a healthy blend of juicable ingredients. Juice the ingredients and pour them into a blender. Then here is the fun part. Add in a whole ripe banana (or another sweet mushy fruit like mango or papaya) add a few coconut water ice cubes and blend on low. Instant frothy gratification.
