Mango Papaya Goodness

My mom stopped by recently and said, "You're looking slim!" Those words were enough to make me fall down and kiss her feet. Not really, but they did confirm what I already knew...Smoothies are waaaaaay better for you than ice cream.

Since I've been on my "smoothie a day" kick, I've noticed a marked improvement in my digestion and energy level. I've also determined that almost anything can be blended into something wonderful-tasting.
Tropical Fruit Smoothie

1/2 papaya, deseeded and scooped out
2 mangoes, skin and pit removed
1 cup vanilla yogurt
1/4 cup orange juice

1. Put everything into the blender and blend until mostly combined.
2. Add ice to the top. Blend until smooth.
3. Enjoy the taste of the tropics. Try not think about how far the fruit travelled.


  1. Hi Natalie,

    Thanks for visiting the blog and the lovely compliment. I currently use iMovie to produce the videos. It's simple and easy to use, unlike Final Cut Express, which I am having a hell of a time figuring out. Good luck with the videos! It's addicting once you start!

  2. Yes please! I would like to be slimmer with better digestion and increased energy.

  3. Thank you for posting about smoothies. I went on a green smoothie kick this year, but wheat grass burned out my blender so I need to purchase a new one and get back into it.

    Ok, the blender could have just died the natural death of old age... 10-15 years is a long time in the life of a blender.
