Mango Papaya Smoothie

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Jostlori

Mangos, papayas and coconuts abound here in Costa Rica both on the Pacific side and on the Caribbean side - you can find them growing all over your yard and on the side of the road. Paradise! Nothing is better for quenching a tropical thirst than a "batido". This healthy smoothie contains most of my favorite fruits! No matter whether you're dreaming of Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, or the Virgin Islands - this wonderful concoction will have you humming "Kokomo" for days...

Made these for the kids yesterday and they liked them very much. Used regular milk instead of almond.
