Here's an extremely easy, healthy and delicious drink for all you smoothie lovers.     It's from Karen Greene's book,  "Fast! Fresh! Fruity!"

Papaya Creamsicle Smoothie

2 papayas, ripe   (Note)
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup vanilla frozen yogurt

Peel, seed and coarsely chop papayas.   Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.

Makes 2 servings.

Note:  I'm sure this recipe calls for small papayas frequently found on northern supermarket shelves.   They are about the size of a medium avocado.  Our papayas in the south run up to twice the size of a cantaloupe, obviously much too large to use two in this recipe.  Use your judgment.  About 2 cups of papaya cubes would make two tall glasses of smoothie.   Select the ripest for best flavor.   If not ripe enough, you may have to add a little sugar to the smoothie.
