Ingredients for Tropical Smoothie

Everyone has their own version of this classic – this is mine…

  • ½ cup ripe mango
  • ½ cup papaya – no seeds
  • 1 small banana (or ½ large)
  • 1 lime – juice only
  • Chunk of ginger root
  • ½ cup iced water

This smoothie is based on the classic dish of papaya, lime and ginger … if you’ve not tried it then please do – it’s delicious.

To make this into a smoothie I’ve added some mango and banana. Don’t put too much banana in as it will dominate the taste – both mango and papaya are fairly delicate tastes. The lime adds a nice edge and you need to be generous with it … the root ginger adds some heat.

Serve chilled on a hot summers day – preferably in the Caribbean :)
