This simple delightful recipe is as easy as it is flexible: dont have mangoes? Add ripe peaches. Dont like papaya? Add some melon. It is just delightful. I add some pineapple occasionally for an extra zing! And, of course, when I make it for the kids, I nix the rum

Papaya, Mango, Basil Shooters
6 servings
2 super ripe mangoes, peeled and diced
1 small ripe papaya, peeled and diced
1 cup coconut milk
3 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 tablespoons coconut rum
1 tablespoon julienned fresh basil leaves for garnish

Blend all the ingredients except the garnish. Chill for at least two hours. Place in shooter glasses, Garish with basil leaves and serve.

Thank you to Reem Rizvi for shooting this photo for me.
