A really tasty smoothie for a hot day like today! =)
Ingredients: - 1 ripe papaya, scooped out into pieces with a spoon - 3 Cups of milk - 2 Cups of crushed ice - 7-8 teaspoons of sugar (to taste, really) - cinnamon - mint leaves to garnish
Use a blender to blend everything except for the cinnamon and mint leaves together (be careful! Remember that blenders can go crazy if you fill it all the way up...about halfway up is good, and if you need to do this in batches, that's fine too).
Serve with a dash of cinnamon sprinkled on top of the foam that will naturally be made, and top with a sprig of mint for some color, pizazz, and flavor. =) We didn't have any mint leaves available, but I think it would be nice. =)
We served ours in martini glasses, but this will serve beautifully in a tall glass as well! =)
