Tropical Papaya Strawberry Smoothie

Ahhhhhhh. This tropical papaya strawberry smoothie made me dream of warmer days here in Indiana. But, you can enjoy a nice fruit smoothie any time of the year. I just close my eyes and ignore the fact that it’s just flat-out cold outside!

Tropical Papaya Strawberry Smoothie

You can substitute pretty much any fruit you’d like. You don’t have to ‘just’ make a tropical papaya strawberry smoothie. Smoothies are not only good for you, they’re also a great way to use up leftover fruit or fruit that’s about to ‘turn’. You can also freeze them for later enjoyment, too. Just thaw slightly first.

Also try my shamrock shake.
