Print Recipe
1/2  of a medium papaya, peeled, seeded, and chopped (3/4 cup)
1/2  cup fresh strawberries
1/2  cup fat-free milk
1/2  cup plain fat-free yogurt
1  tablespoon honey
3   large ice cubes
   Papaya or strawberry slices (optional)
   Fresh mint (optional)

1. In a blender container combine papaya, strawberries, milk, yogurt, and honey. Cover and blend until smooth.
2. With the blender running, add ice cubes, one at a time, through the opening in the lid, until ice is crushed and mixture is smooth. Pour into 2 tall glasses. If desired, garnish with papaya or strawberry slices and mint. Serve immediately. Makes 2 servings.
Papaya Tips: Choose papayas that are partially yellow and feel slightly soft when pressed. The skin should be smooth and free from bruises or very soft spots. A firm, unripe papaya can be ripened at room temperature for 3 to 5 days until mostly yellow to yellowish orange in color. Store a ripe papaya in a paper or plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
