Spicy Papaya Sunrise
Tropical and juicy, this healthy punch offers vitamins A and C. Jalapeno delivers more than a spicy kick: Anti-inflammatory carotenoids give the pepper its bright red skin.
- 3/4 cup diced papaya
- 1 cup diced watermelon
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- 1/2 red jalapeno (sliced; seeded if desired to reduce heat)
- Slice of lime
- Slice of jalapeno
Puree papaya, watermelon, lime juice, and 1/2 jalapeno in a blender until smooth. Strain and chill. Serve over ice and garnish with a slice each of lime and jalapeno.
