Ingredients

  • 1 medium papaya
  • 1 cup frozen pineapple chunks (I used canned but fresh should do too)

  • coconut flakes for garnish

Preparation

  1. Peel and roughly chop the papaya.
  2. Put all ingredients (except for the coconut flakes) in a blender and blend until smooth.
  3. Divide in two glasses, garnish.
  4. Enjoy!

Notes

If you don't want to open a second can of coconut milk (my cans always have 400ml), you can use just one and sub some almond or soy milk for the rest.
