Quick And Easy Papaya Smoothie

Quick And Easy Papaya Smoothie

Hey Everyone! Papaya is a fruit that as a child i was used to seeing in the household and being served at breakfast. Its a good source of vitamins A & C. It also contains tons of fiber and reduces the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. You can enjoy it freshly cut or add it to a yummy fruit salad or smoothie! Just cut off the top and bottom, then half the fruit lengthwise. Then with a spoon scoop out and discard seeds. Then cut into bite-size pieces or slices. For even more flavor I like to squeeze a little lime juice over the top. Did you know that papaya seeds are actually edible? The papaya seed is said to have a slightly peppery/mustard taste. Leave a comment below if you have ever made a dish using papaya seeds in it.

Enjoy,

Quick And Easy Papaya Smoothie

2 cups fresh papaya, deseeded and chopped.
1 whole banana
1/2 cup Coconut water, chilled. (You can substitute as needed)
1/2 cup passion fruit juice, chilled.
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
2 Tablespoons ground flax seed
1 Tablespoon agave (optional)

Just place ingredients in blender and blend. If the consistency is too thick for you just add more of your liquid ingredients or ice and continue to blend to your liking! So easy and so delicious.

Quick TIP: I love to put all of my fruits in Glad Freezer Bags at the beginning of the week for easy and convenient smoothie prep.
