This papaya smoothie is so deliciously smooth and creamy it’s ridiculous!
Not to mention double-thick! It tastes like the most decadent milkshake, you know the type with ice cream and sugar and all that stuff – but this doesn’t contain anything like that!
It’s just pure fruit!
And just two ingredients too!
So you get to feel like you’re having a major treat, while you’re giving your body a treat at the same time.
This smoothie is super hydrating, invigorating, refreshing and satisfying!
Papaya is one of the most delicious fruits and when it’s good it’s just oh SO good! And it goes amazingly well with bananas.
In fact, another awesome way to eat papaya is to slice it in half, scoop out the seeds, and then stuff it with sliced banana. Yum!
But since this is a smoothie, it’s just a case of blending it up with frozen banana.
The frozen banana provides the double-thick ice cream milkshake texture and the flavors blend fantastically!
The banana flavor retreats to the background on this one, letting the papaya lead the way. So even if you’re not a huge banana fan, you’ll likely enjoy this shake.
This papaya smoothie is one you’ll love long time! It’s:
- Quick and Easy
Absolutely ideal for breakfast, lunch or a pre or post-workout snack!
