Strawberry Carrot, Papaya Smoothie, a fantastic combination of flavors makes this healthy drink super delicious. An easy and amazingly delicious Papapa Smoothie you can make in minutes.
A classic Smoothie recipe is something everyone should have in their arsenal. A smoothie is a thick and creamy beverage made from milk or ice-cream, fruits and/or vegetables. All the ingredients are added into a blender and you have a delicious mixture within minutes.
The Papaya is the main ingredient in this smoothie. Also called Pawpaw, Papaya is a tropical fruit found all year round. You will find it in different sizes and is available in most local markets.
How to buy Papaya
Although papayas are available in different sizes, be sure to know the size and the recipes you want to create before your purchase. You can search the recipes section of the website for some ideas.
When buying Papaya be sure to purchase one that is green in color. The fruit is fully ripe when the skin of the Papaya is yellow in color instead of green. Choose a Papaya that is not bruised and firm to the touch. Organic is always better. If you can afford to buy organic, go for it.
How to use your papaya
As mentioned earlier, there are several recipes on this website and also on the web to try. Papaya is also used in the Caribbean as a vegetable. It makes a perfect addition to stews. A meat or meatless vegetable stew is perfect with white rice.
Papaya drinks are great during the hot summer days. A Papaya Frappe is very refreshing and perfect for small gatherings. Papaya Soup, the combination of sweet and salty, is the perfect winter soup to help you stay healthy. Serve it with a grilled cheese sandwich, and you have a delicious lunch or dinner.
Eating the fruit raw is perfectly normal. I prefer mine frozen with a little bit of condensed milk. Just a special comfort treat to enjoy.
What is a good smoothie recipe that does not include bananas?
This recipe contains no bananas!!! It is also an excellent papaya smoothie for weight loss. A full glass will make you feel full, and you may not need to need to eat anything else for a couple of hours.
If you are trying to lose weight and following a healthy diet, you can substitute coconut milk for almond milk or another type of low-fat milk of your choice.
What is Strawberry, Carrot and Papaya Smoothie?
This smoothie recipe was inspired by a surplus of fruits during the summer heatwaves. Don’t you find it difficult to cook or even eat carbs, or starchy foods during those heatwaves? The only thing I like to do is eat lots of fruits and vegetables. It keeps me hydrated and my body does not feel like a ton of bricks with the excess humidity in the air.
This recipe is one of the most incredibly nutritious smoothies you can make. It has coconut milk, which is considered a heart health ingredient due do its fat content. Coconut milk contains inflammatory properties and can also boost your immune system. Carrot, a superfood, contains lots of antioxidants and anti-cancer properties. Strawberry, one of the most popular fruits, a range of potential benefits and can support the body’s defenses against a variety of diseases.
how to make papaya smoothie
The recipe is simple, requiring only six ingredients, a blender (I use my NutriBullet) and you will notice from the ingredients list there’s no sugar added. Who needs a sweetener anyway?
I used frozen strawberries instead of crushed ice or ice cubes. You can also use frozen Papaya if you want. The carrot must be raw, peeled and sliced. The coconut milk, choose a good brand, contains healthy fats and will make the smoothie super creamy and delicious.
The lime juice is optional. I find that lime juice revives all the ingredients, and adds a nice kick to the taste of the smoothie.
Vanilla Extract??? Who would have thought? Yes, it combines all the flavors of the fruits and milk together and also elevates their aromas. A must add-on to this recipe. By the way, if you have not added vanilla extract to your lemonade, now it’s your time to be adventurous.
