Sometimes after a couple of days of unhealthy eating & drinking I feel the need to put something good and refreshing in my body. This is it. The papaya is chock-full of vitamins and the mint is invigorating.
Buy a papaya in advance and let it sit on a counter. This is a fruit that needs to ripen, it should almost looked bruise and should be soft to touch. Limes & papaya are a traditional pairing.A bit of agave nectar added to the mix.Enjoy.
