I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Yummy and refreshing drink on a warm sunny day, or a wonderful breakfast drink.  Easy to make and so much tastier than store bought.  I put it through a mesh sieve because my family doesn't care for the pulp.   If you like pulp, skip that step.

(serves 12)

*1 cup granulated sugar
*1 cup boiling water
*4 cups cold water, divided
*2 cups papayas, peeled & chopped
*1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice (4-6 lemons)
*2 cups mango, peeled & chopped

~Stir sugar into boiling water, stirring until sugar dissolves.
~Let sugar mixture (simple sugar) cool to room temperature.
~Place papaya, mango ,lemon juice, 2 cups very cold water & simple sugar mixture into a blender.
~Process until mixture is smooth.
~Stir in remaining 2 cups cold water.
~Put a mesh sieve over a 2 quart picture.
~Pour lemonade mixture through mesh sieve.
~Add ice to lemonade mixture and refrigerate.
