"Papaya's sunny flavor is a great addition to banana and strawberry, the traditional smoothie favorites."

I loved this smoothie! The papaya gives a nice texture. Since I used frozen banana and strawberries, I omitted the ice. I also omitted the sugar and I don't recommend adding any.
I didn't think it had much flavor. I tried to add honey, pineapples, and peaches, but it didn't work. My husband and I both threw ours out.
i thought it was very good but i suggest you use the mexican carribian red papayas instead of the dinky hawwiian ones.
Excellent recipe, easy to prepare. All I did was add a bit of Splenda to make it sweeter.
Execellent. Great way to incorporate papaya into your diet. Have ended up throwing any fruit I have on hand, makes it even better, especially cherries.
I used Mexican papaya and only used half the papaya. Glad I did. The whole papaya would have been way too much. I also used Splenda instead of sugar and added a splash of pineapple juice because it was too thick. Next time, I'd add more ice. We like our smoothies a little more slushy and frozen than this recipe turns out. Other than that, the flavor is delicious so we'll definitely make again.
I left out the papaya, and added about 1/4 cup minute maid frozen lemon aid.
that was an improvement
This is delicious! just be sure to use the mexican papaya as someone said and not the flavorless hawaiian.
I added a dash of cinnamon powder.
