Papaya Smoothie

posted on: Wednesday, September 10, 2008

If you are lucky enough to either live in Hawaii or vacation in Hawaii then you should take full advantage of the abundant papayas that seem to be every where. This fruit has zero fat, zero cholesterol, and tons of fiber. Which means that it's good for you and also good for your 2 year old who hates going number 2. Today I made a papaya smoothie and Enzo loved it and I loved how easily he went to the bathroom without screaming ouch, ouch, ouch for 10 minutes.

Papaya Smoothie

  • 1 medium papaya
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons frozen concentrated orange juice
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  1. Remove the seeds from the papaya and scoop the flesh out into a blender
  2. Place the other ingredients in the blender with the papaya
  3. put a couple ice cubes (optional)
  4. Blend on medium speed for about 10-15 seconds
  5. makes 3 cups
