Banana papaya green smoothie

Hey all,

I just made the simplest (but really tasty!) green smoothie that I thought I would share with everyone:

3 bananas
1/2 of a papaya
2 handfuls of leafy greens (I've got a mix of spinach, kale, and swiss chard)
2-3 cups of water (depending on how thick you like your smoothies).

Pour 1 cup of water in the blender, then add the bananas, papaya, and the greens.

Blend until everything is well-blended, then pour in the remaining water until you get the thickness you want.

This makes a large amount of green smoothie - I ended up dividing it between two big mason jars. I'm about halfway through my green smoothie - yum!! Not only am I getting a bunch of vitamins and minerals, but I'm also getting nicely hydrated. Feels like a pretty nice way to start the day! Very Happy
