Breakfast doesn't have to be labor-intensive. This tasty Strawberry Papaya Shake is as easy as it is healthful.
3/4 cup peeled, seeded, and chopped papaya
1/2 cup fresh strawberries
1/2 cup plain fat-free yogurt
1 tablespoon honey
3 large ice cubes or 1/3 cup crushed ice
Papaya or strawberry slices (optional)
Fresh mint (optional)
1/2 cup fat-free milk
In a blender container combine papaya, strawberries, milk, yogurt, and honey. Cover and blend until smooth.
With the blender running, add ice cubes, one at a time, through the opening in the lid, until ice is crushed and mixture is smooth. Pour into 2 tall glasses.
If desired, garnish with papaya or strawberry and mint. Serve immediately.
Papaya Tips: Choose papayas that are partially yellow and feel slightly soft when pressed. The skin should be smooth and free from bruises or very soft spots. A firm, unripe papaya can be ripened at room temperature for 3 to 5 days until mostly yellow to yellowish orange in color. Store a ripe papaya in a paper or plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
