Orange Banana Smoothie
- 4 large California oranges
- 2 large ripe plantain bananas, peeled and cubed
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream, well-chilled
- 1/3 cup honey
- 2 cups crushed ice
- Juice two of the oranges. Finely grate the zest of one orange, excluding the white pith. Set zest and juice aside.
- Peel the remaining two oranges. Remove bitter membranes. Using a small, sharp paring knife, make an incision from the top to the bottom of a segment. Use the tip of the knife to pull or push out the pulp (called suprême) and drop into a bowl. Repeat with the rest of the oranges and segments.
- Place plantains, suprêmes, orange zest and juice, 2/3 cup heavy cream and honey in a blender. Pulse until smooth and thoroughly pureed. Add crushed ice and pulse for another 30 seconds to combine.
- Divide smoothie between two glasses. Set aside.
- Whip remaining 1/3 cup cream until stiff. Spoon into a piping bag fitted with an open star tip. Pipe whipped cream over smoothies and serve right away.
- You can replace orange with tangerine, blood oranges or any other not-so-bitter citrus fruits available.
