Power drink restores your energy: Dairy-free papaya and fruit smoothie

So many smoothies are made with daily products such as milk or ice cream which can be difficult for some to digest if they are lactose intolerant. Here is a recipe that is strictly made of fruit that is naturally sweet, full-bodied and quiet nutritious. The papaya gives this drink its bright coral coloring and lots of nutrients. The banana provides potassium while the juices bring vitamin C to the table with a citrus tang blended in for a refreshing twist.
