Blueberry Papaya Smoothie (Milkshake)

Growing up my mom would always make us milkshakes, only they weren't really milkshakes because they didn't have any ice cream in them. We just called them milkshakes, but now I realize they were really smoothies. They were never too sweet, just a combination of skim milk, frozen fruit and maybe a little sugar. Sometimes she used yogurt and now we always have frozen sliced bananas, just in case. My husband does not like it when I make these and call it a milkshake, but I still do. This one was just a combo of some of the frozen fruit we had in the freezer at the moment and it was yummy! The measurements are just a guess because I was just adding it as I went.

Blueberry Papaya Smoothie
2 cups skim milk
1 1/2 cups frozen blueberries
1 cup frozen papaya chunks
1 banana, sliced and frozen
3/4 cup frozen Cool Whip
a dash or sprinkle of sugar
Combine milk and fruit in blender. Blend until smooth. Add Cool Whip and sugar, if desired. Add more fruit or milk until the desired thickness is reached.
