Papaya Smoothie

Papayas are the most desirable fruits these days. High in both Vitamin A and C which are antioxidants and support immune system. Papayas also contain papain, an enzyme that aids digestion. Knowing the goodness of this tropical fruit which can be easily grown anywhere, One is bound to include it in dietary regime. 

I am already in love with smoothies and they are just heavenly good and cool for summers. If you don't have time for heavy fulfilling breakfast these smoothies are just right to sustain you till lunch. 

Papayas are best for morning meals and smoothies just before any workouts is perfectly awesome choice for it gives that boost and energy kick. The goodness of this fruit is just right for diabetic people and nutrients content makes it suitable to be labelled as diabetic friendly recipe. You can combine the papayas with any or number of other fruits also to make a twisted change in flavour and texture of smoothie like banana, apple or orange. Here the smoothie is blended plain with skimmed milk alone.I have added cardamom powder to give it little flavour as mine were not very sweet ones. 

This is the best use of papayas in case they are not very sweet in taste. Papayas smoothies when blended with milk turns out to be very flowing smooth texture and if prepared without milk looks thick and could be a good option of turning it into Popsicle. Just blend, freeze and done. 

Coming to the recipe This is no fuss easy 5 min recipe with no culinary skills required. Just know the ingredients, blend it well and it is ready to gulp.

Papaya is one of my favorite fruits. Frankly, I am not too much into shakes, juices, and smoothies. But you seem to be blending all fruits to perfection to turn them into shakes and drinks. Lovely innovations.
