Cool It Now Papaya Banana Smoothie

This cool, refreshing smoothie is perfect for these hot & humid days that are now upon us.  Frozen fruit is a great alternative to using ice and it keeps your smoothie from getting watered down.  I chopped up some bananas and froze them to use as”ice” cubes for my smoothies.  My friend gave me a papaya the size of a small watermelon last weekend, so I was pumped to get some smoothie action out of it.  I also threw some raw cashews in ’cause I’m nuts like that.  Enjoy!
