Nutritional values

Thanks to the papaya and oranges, your body will get twice the daily requirement of vitamin C per serving! 

Ice cubes with lime juice give this drink a fresh note, so it's worth stocking up on them and adding a few drops of lime juice to the water you are using to make the ice cubes.
