One Smoothie a Day Challenge: Day One - Mango Papaya Ginger Smoothie

One Smoothie a Day: Day One - Mango Papaya Ginger Smoothie

Yey, it`s day one of our one smoothie a day challenge and I hope you`re all busy buying and preparing your fresh fruits. What ingredients did you use for your first smoothie? Tell me all about it!
I decided to gor for a little bit of color, just a pop of orange on a grey winter day to cheer things up. Originally I planned going for mango, ginger and pineapple, as the photo below proofs. But sadly the pineapple turned out to be already brown inside, although I only had bought it the day before.... :(
Forced to change things up, I used papaya instead, which I forgot to take a picture of. In the end papaya and mango resulted to be one hell of a sweet and exotic combination, ergo no regrets at all. This smoothie is such an explosion of different flavours, it`s sweet, spicy, juicy and hot at the same time, due to the ginger. And papaya might have just become one of my favorite fruits, so heavenly.
