I agree with the lime/papaya combo. I thought it was crazy till a lady at work turned me onto it. What delicious and simple treat!

The papayas are ripe and so sweet now. We've been dicing them and eating them plain...simply delicious. This morning, I decided to make a smoothie with skim milk, sugar and ice and cubed papaya but I could not develop a taste for it. Did I miss an ingredient that will give it a kick? Hmmm....

Add a bit of crushed ginger.

In Costa Rica, we drink a lot of refrescos naturales (natural fruit drinks) made with papaya. Peel and cut papaya, place in blender with a little water, ice, and sugar to taste, and blend until smooth. If desired, you can run it through a sieve to remove some of the pulp but we usually drink it right out of the blender.
