“For the best taste and color, use a red-fleshed Hawaiian papaya for this exotic, lip-puckering taste of island summer. Papayas are loaded with papain, a digestive enzyme, so this smoothie is a good dessert to settle stomachs after a substantial meal.”


    • 1 cup chopped fresh pineapple
    • ½ cup chopped peeled papaya
    • ¼ cup guava nectar, (see Ingredient Note)
    • 1 tablespoon lime juice
    • 1 teaspoon grenadine, (see Ingredient Note)
    • ½ cup ice


  • 1 Place ingredients in the order listed in a blender. Pulse three times to chop the fruit, then blend until smooth. Serve immediately.
  • Ingredient Notes: Grenadine is a red syrup (originally flavored with pomegranate juice) used to color and flavor drinks. Look for it in the bar-mix section of your supermarket.
  • Guava nectar is available in most markets, with the juices or in the Latin American section.
