Papaya and Raspberry Smoothie



Here’s another lovely smoothie that you can do when you find ripe papayas in the grocery. Try blending it with raspberries and you’ll come up with not only a healthy beverage but something that your taste buds will love! Try it!

Ingredients

2 cups ripe papaya, chopped
1-2 cups raspberries
1 cup crushed ice
Sugar or honey, to taste

Procedure

Place all the ingredients in the blender, with the ice at the bottom.
Process till smooth. I use my shake/smoothie button for this.

Note: If you wish to have a creamier version, add some milk (1/4 cup or to taste). When I fancy a Papaya Shake instead of a smoothie then I definitely add milk. 🙂

 

 Transfer to a glass and enjoy!
