One benefits of living in S. Florida is the access to varies to tropical and exotic fruits and vegetables. All most everyone I know has a papaya tree growing in their back yard. Did you know that papayas were referred to as "fruit of the angels"? This fruit is full of antioxidants, fiber, vitamins and makes for a great face mask. But today, I will be using it in a smoothie.
1 cup of fresh papaya
3.5 heaping tablespoons of sugar
7 oz of evaporated milk (half a can)
1.5 cups of ice
BLEND. BLEND. BLEND.
Serving 2 cups.
This smoothie brings me back to my childhood. Enjoy!
