Strawberry Papaya Green Smoothie

Posted by on Jan 11, 2014 in Recipes | 0 comments

I’m pretty allergic to a number of fruits, mostly those I grew up with and loved. I’ve no idea why. All I know is I started getting strange hive outbreaks on my face and neck when I was on a work trip to Turkey, and eventually realized that they happened every time I ate a beautiful, sweet juicy peach.  After that, I started getting reactions to other fruits as well and it just went downhill from there.  I must have at some point got tingly lips or something after eating a strawberry, and decided I was allergic to strawberries too. 

A week or so ago though, with Benadryl close by, I decided I was going to try strawberries again.  After all, I’m not allergic to any other berries.  And nothing. No reaction at all. 

I don’t think I can express the joy that I felt at that very moment, but I felt like a new world had been opened up to me.  I started putting strawberries in everything! This strawberry papaya smoothie is something very special however, and so that is why I am sharing it today.
