5 Minute Papaya Smoothie Recipe
It’s official: I’m hooked on papayas.
Currently, this smoothie is my go-to on the days that I’m late for class or on days that I feel that I should stick to my plan to follow a healthier diet. I like that the recipe is versatile as I can use various combinations and it still tastes good. Another thing that I like about this recipe is that it’s simple to try out and add or remove ingredients based on personal preferences.
- 1/4 ripe papaya
- One tablespoon chia seeds
- 1/2 cup mineral water (or milk)
- 1 tablespoon honey
- Cut the papaya in half and remove the seeds. Then, cut the papaya into another half before peeling it, roughly chop the peeled papaya and add it to the blender.
- Add a tablespoon of chia seeds, mineral water and a tablespoon of honey. Blend until very smooth. Add ice and blend until smooth, or serve chilled.
For a smooth and creamier texture, chill the fruits in the freezer overnight and blend without ice.
Hope you will enjoy the smoothie as much as I do!
