Papaya, mango, rum and ice cream – what’s not to like about this summer dessert drink? This tasty concoction reminds me of the great fresh fruit (and rum!) that we enjoyed in Jamaica. We just barely blended the papaya, mango and rum so that there were still small chunks of papaya – but you can blend it longer if you want a creamier mix.
