Papaya Smoothie: Leaves In Your Smoothie, What?

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 affect 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.
