Tropical Sunrise Smoothie

I absolutely adore making smoothies-especially in this tropical paradise where fruits are everywhere and cooling foods so appealing. To make a good smoothie, all you need is a decent blender and fresh ingredients. For the tropical sunrise smoothie, you will need:

  1. 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  2. 1 large frozen banana or 2 small ones
  3. 1 cup frozen papaya chunks
  4. 2 tsp. flax seeds
  5. 1 tbsp. coconut, shredded
  6. 1 cup rice or almond milk

serves: 2

Blend all ingredients in a blender and sip ’til you have a lazy tropical smile on your face!
