vacation smoothies

When I am on vacation I often just eat fruit for breakfast. If I have my blender with me, I make a smoothie. You can walk on the beach while sipping your smoothie, or just lie in a hammock and relax. They are fast and easy to make.

Ingredients: 2 C pineapple, 1 cup papaya, 1 1/2 cup cantaloupe

1. Chop all of the fruit and place it in the blender container. Make sure you taste the fruit for sweetness and flavor before you blend.
2. Blend until smooth.
3. Serve
If it isn't sweet enough, you may add a few teaspoons of honey.
