Print Papaya & coconut smoothie

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.
