Tropical Smoothie

My kids spent the afternoon practicing tricks on their scooters at the local skate park today. They were hot and exhausted when we got home so I whipped up these tropical smoothies for them. Needless to say, they were a huge hit and I am sure they will be requesting these smoothies again tomorrow.

Combine the papaya, mango, bananas, orange juice, milk, yogurt, and ice  cubes together in a blender. Blend until well mixed. Taste then add a bit of agave or honey if it needs to be sweetened. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
