Papaya Mango Smoothie

One of the things that I miss the most about Honduras is our wonderful mango season. I used to wait the whole year for this time of the year to come. Every year around March, one could start seeing mangos being sold in the streets, at every stop light, at the supermarkets, in the market, they are all around! Oh I miss mango season and I miss the price of mangos down in Honduras. Three mangos for $1 !
I find it crazy that so many people here have never tried a mango! But then again, I had never had a real raspberry until I moved over here (btw, rasperries just taste like raspberry flavored candy to me). Mangos are hard to find around here and feel like a luxury in my opinion at one mango for $1. But it is a price that I am willing to pay because I LOVE MANGOS!
Now papaya I am not crazy about, but in this smoothie it is awesome! If you have never seen or tried one google it. They are great for your digestive system. If you can't find any at your local supermarket substitute for banana or pineapple.
If you love mango or papaya or both you should definitely give this smoothie a try! It was awesome!!!

Papaya Mango Smoothie
Adapted from Pinch of Yum
1 ripe mango, peeled and diced
2 cups of papaya, cubed (you could use pineapple here too)
1/2 cup orange juice or juice of 1 orange
1/4 cup of milk of your choice
Sweetener of your choice (I used splenda)
1/2 cup of coconut milk, from a can or box
Put all your ingredients in your blender and blend until smooth! Enjoy!
Note: for a quick breakfast, I left my fruit ready in the blender the night before and just added the liquids in the morning. I didn't use any ice.
