Papaya Smoothie – Give it a Try!

FullSizeRender - Copy (13)

Every once in a while I’ll grab a fruit or vegetable at the market that I don’t usually use in my recipes.  Not living on a tropical island, I wonder:  that jicama, passion fruit, or papaya looks interesting…. what do people do with that? So, that is why I came home with this monster papaya this week.  Papaya, fun to say, also called a pawpaw, (more fun to say) is loaded with good stuff for you, so let’s start with a smoothie.  Here’s what I did:

1 cup chopped peeled seeded papaya

1/2 cup pineapple juice

1/2 cup watermelon

1/2 cup plain fat free Greek yogurt

1 tablespoon real maple syrup

A squeeze of lime

4 ice cubes

Blend in blender or large nutriblast until smooth.  Pour into a pretty glass add a straw, sit in the sunshine and enjoy!


Papaya – not so scary anymore…. wonder what the produce manager has in store for me next week….. maybe horned melon or gooseberries….

    Hey there would you mind letting me know which web host you’re working with?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet
    browsers and I must say this blog loads a
    lot faster thern most. Can you recommend a good web hosting provider at a honest
    price? Cheers, I appreciate it!

      Hi, this is a WordPress site and I use bluehost which is fairly reasonable. I like that my blog loads well across all devices too. Good luck and thanks for stopping by. Susan
