I loved this smoothie! The papaya gives a nice texture. Since I used frozen banana and strawberries I omitted the ice. I also omitted the sugar and I don't recommend adding any. Read More

I didn't think it had much flavor. I tried to add honey pineapples and peaches but it didn't work. My husband and I both threw ours out. Read More

Execellent. Great way to incorporate papaya into your diet. Have ended up throwing any fruit I have on hand makes it even better especially cherries. Read More

I used Mexican papaya and only used half the papaya. Glad I did. The whole papaya would have been way too much. I also used Splenda instead of sugar and added a splash of pineapple juice because it was too thick. Next time I'd add more ice. We like our smoothies a little more slushy and frozen than this recipe turns out. Other than that the flavor is delicious so we'll definitely make again. Read More

This is delicious! just be sure to use the mexican papaya as someone said and not the flavorless hawaiian. I added a dash of cinnamon powder. Read More
