Papaya Blast Smoothie

Papaya Blast Smoothie

Creamy, nutritious and just tooooo good!

It’s getting hot here in Shanghai so what’s best than cooling off with a nice smoothie?

This is the perfect pre-workout snack, breakfast or afternoon snack. The kind of the show this time is papaya, which is one of my favorite fruit and it also among the low-glycemic ones, as it is rich in fibers.

To fresh things up a notch, I used gre3n coconut water and to add some extra creaminess I used  Irene rich yogurt. Give this one a try!

Here is the recipe 🙂

Ingredients (makes 1):

  • 1 can coconut water (I used gre3n from Thailand)
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 140 gr rich yogurt (if you live in Shanghai, try Irene’s, they are the best)
  • 1  cup diced frozen papaya
  • 1/2 cup sliced frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup ice cubes (optional)

Gather all the ingredients

Place them in a blender and process until creamy and smooth. Enjoy 🙂
