Banana Papaya Smoothie

We love smoothies over here. Chris makes himself one almost every day for work and Olivia is almost always game for making and enjoying one. I love the endless possibilities of this treat, and was inspired to try something new with papaya when I saw some at the store this week. I whipped up this super easy and very delicious smoothie and had to share. It's really mild and satisfying,  

You will need:

1 frozen banana

1 c. cubed papaya

1 c. soy milk

2 tbsp vanilla extract

shredded coconut (optional)

Combine all the ingredients (minus the coconut) in the blender and voila! Sprinkle coconut on top of smoothie for a little extra flavor, if desired.

So, what do you think? I think I'm making another one tomorrow! xo
