I am humming the Hawaii 5-0 theme song as I write this review ;) I made these smoothies for breakfast the last couple of mornings. They were so delicious and refreshing. I made them with pineapple juice one morning and papaya nectar the next. I thought they were equally good. Gave me a great energy boost as I headed to the pool to swim laps. Thanks for sharing this recipe. We will use it a lot this summer as it is Smoothie Central at our house.

This has a refreshing tropical flavor! My bananas were on the large side. I did better to cut one in half- the whole big one was trying to take over the drink! Half one was perfect. Thanks for the recipe!

This recipe sounds so good. I had to make a bunch of major changes and it didn't work out so well. I omitted the papaya and I think that was the fatal flaw. I used guava juice and then followed the rest to a t except I used a frozen banana. The texture was great and frothy, but it was really missing something which I think was the papaya. So a word of caution, this has fabulous potential but needs all 3 fruits! When I can get my hands on some papaya I will make it again and re-review.
