Papaya Smoothie: Leaves In Your Smoothie, What?

by Accounting Department March 21, 2014 0 Comments

So here at herbal papaya we juice and do green smoothies. We love smoothies actually. We experiment with recipes and thought we would share our favorite smoothie tips using papaya fruit, leaves and seed.

For your papaya smoothie remember one thing, you need to add something sweet. Papaya is very low sugar so if you like sweet smoothies add agave, stevia or one half of a banana to your smoothies for a great tasting papaya smoothie.

Tip two, you can add our papaya leaf extract (1 tablespoon) directly into your blender with everything else and it won't effect the taste or strength of the extract. Our extract if activated by your saliva so don't forget to swish or "chew" your smoothie as you drink it.

You can also add papaya leaves bulk right into your smoothie use it in place of your ginko or red raspberry leaves.

Papaya tea in smoothies is a great substitute instead of using water, milk or juice. Brew 2 teaspoons per cup of flash boiled water, let stoop for 10-20 minutes for extra strength. Add 16 ounces of tea to your smoothie instead of your usual smoothie liquid. Use 8 oz for a smaller smoothie size.

Papaya Smoothie Recipe

1 cup frozen organic papaya puree or fruit chunks

16 ounces papaya tea or almond milk 1/2 - 1

Very Ripe Banana

1 Tablespoon Agave

1/2 Cup Spinach, Kale, or Papaya Leaves (got to get your chlorophyll)

Blend and Enjoy! (Make sure you have a powerful blender but never blend for more than 50 seconds as you will lose nutrients due to the heat of the blender.

Go for papaya, go for life!  Jessica Oren is a certified Birth Doula (CBI) and a Family Herbalist ~ graduate of The School of Natural Healing. You can find her on Google+

The Truth about Fad Diets and How to Safely Lose Weight Without Them

Fad diets are often marketed as the quickest route out of pounds-ville – have you noticed how they tend to change from one year to the next? – and it’s little wonder anyone looking to shed weight fast is always turning to them.

These lose-weight-fast diets could come in different shapes. Juice cleanses. Soup-only diets. The paleo diet. The ketogenic diet. The whole 30; these are all fads. You can also throw intermittent fasting in there.

Most tend to come masked in the “100% money-back guarantee” promise. And why would they not? Fad diets do work. Well, at least they try to! If they promise you will lose 20 pounds within six weeks, chances are you will get within a ballpark of that figure.
