After a week in Costa Rica I am trying to bring some of our vacation home with us. Coming home to cold weather, light flurries and Christmas decorations makes me long for the tropical weather and foods from our vacation. Yes, I did say Christmas decorations. It's hard to believe, but there are a few houses in our neighbourhood that already have lights and decorations out!
While away I was able to make blender after blender full of fresh tropical fruit smoothies. It was such a treat to have a steady flow of fresh papaya, pineapple, mango and watermelon.
1/2 papaya, seeds removed, peeled and cubed
1/2 pineapple, peeled, core removed and cubed
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 cup almond milk
1 cup ice cubes
Place all ingredients into a blender and fill with water until it reaches the top of the fruit. Blend and serve!
