Mamey sapote is a fiber-rich tropical fruit that grows abundantly year-round and tastes like pumpkin pie. They have a short shelf-life, but keep well in the freezer. This recipe based on Planet Umoja's ebook "The Fast Fruit Life" combines frozen mamey and bananas to make a creamy smoothie that's equally satisfying and energizing. If you don't have mamey sapote in your local supermarket, you can ask your produce manager to order them through Melissa's Produce or Frieda's. Alternatively, you can purchase fresh mamey sapote online from RobertIsHere.com or MiamiFruit.org. You can get a 5% discount off your order from Miami Fruit with coupon code MASTERINGDIABETES.
