Our Favorite Papaya Smoothies

 

1. Papaya Banana & Pineapple Smoothie

If you're looking for a boost in healthy digestion, look no further than this smoothie by Vanessa at Vegan Family Recipes. Vanessa's not the biggest fan of papaya by itself, but that doesn't mean she can't still use it for the health benefits!

She decided to blend papaya with banana, ginger, lime juice, pineapple, and almond milk to create a delicious treat she best describes as a tropical volcano with rainbows coming out of it. Perhaps our favorite papaya smoothie description we've found yet!

6. Papaya & Lime Smoothie

Papaya & lime together? I can't think of anything that conjures up tropical images more than that! This sugar free and dairy free smoothie from Emily at Fuss Free Cooking is a big hit with the Herbal Papaya family. She grew up in Penang, Malaysia growing papaya trees in her garden so she knows fresh when she tastes it. 

This papaya smoothie is actually a popular drink in Taiwan and Emily shares her secrets with us in sharing her own version of it. Combine papaya with grated lime rind and soy milk and voilà you have a delicious drink to sip on! We especially love topping this one with chia seeds as she does in the recipe.

With only 3-ingredients in this smoothie, you're only getting the good stuff. Mix in papaya with banana and almond milk for a creamy and quick treat. This smoothie provides a nice mellow taste, perfect to start your morning off with!
