Sweet Corn Smoothie

Sweet Corn Smoothie


2 ½ cups fresh sweet corn kernels

(3 medium cobs)

1 vanilla bean, split and scraped

1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger

¾ cup honey flavor Greek yogurt

1/2 cup coconut milk

1 cup chunks of pineapple

1 cup chunks of mango

1 small banana

3 tablespoons honey — plus more, if needed after testing for sweetness

2 cups ice


Shave off the corn kernels — position the cob on the end of a bowl and run a knife down the sides to get all the kernels and its juice. Add the vanilla bean — split lengthwise and with the tip of a knife scrape the seeds from the bean into the bowl. Add grated ginger. Place into a blender. Add the honey, coconut milk, pineapple, mango, banana and Greek yogurt. Blend until smooth. Taste for sweetness and add more honey if needed. Add ice cubes and blend. Serve in a chilled glass. Optional: Grate a little fresh nutmeg over the top.
