Papaya and coconut smoothie

Serves 4 10 min
Both papaya and banana are very mellow tastes and partner well with most things. You could add pineapple, watermelon, mango or even a little carrot juice into the mix if you want to experiment. The sweetness of the papaya will differ with ripeness, so the honey is best added to taste; as are the strong sharpness and heat of the lime and ginger.

Ingredients

  • 1 papaya
  • 2 bananas
  • 200ml coconut milk
  • handful of ice cubes
  • 2 limes
  • honey, to taste
  • 10g freshly grated ginger

Method

Prep time: 10 min
  • Step 1

    Cut away the skin and seeds from the papaya. Roughly dice the flesh. Peel the bananas.
  • Step 2

    Put the bananas, papaya and coconut milk in a blender. Whizz together, adding ice until you get the consistency you want.
  • Step 3

    Add lime juice and honey to taste. The ginger is optional; add as much or as little as you like.
  • Step 4

    Drink cold.
