Tips for buying and preparing papaya
The first thing to do when buying papaya is to know when and how you will eat it. Depending on the intention you will either choose a reddish-orange skin or greenish skin and very few yellow patches.
Papaya takes a few days to ripen and the spots do not affect the taste. But make sure you eat it right away when the skin is completely reddish-yellow or yellow.
Preparing papaya is not difficult at all. Wash it first, remove the skin, remove the black seeds if you don’t want to eat them as they are bitter. Slice, juice and enjoy.
Prepare all the ingredients. Wash and slice the fruits that are needed to be cut. Juice the oranges. Add all the ingredients in a high-powered blender. Blend until smooth and enjoy immediately.
I am in love with my Nutri Personal Ninja Blender. It is fast, easy to clean and worth the price in my opinion. If you need a smoothie every day, this is a good investment as a regular blender may not give you the same result. Unless you have a high power full-size professional blender, then you can make smoothies for the whole family.
