Raw Papaya Smoothie: Super C!

Raw Papaya SmoothieMorning smoothies, including this raw papaya smoothie, are such a great way to pack your nutritional morning punch, to start your day off right. It’s also a great way to get more fruits and greens into your diet. This morning I made a smoothie with fruit from the land here on the big Island of Hawaii. I try to make use of what’s growing around me, what’s in season and of course use only organic foods. This raw papaya smoothie is packed with vitamin C, a super healthy immune boosting vitamin from the papaya, oranges, and camu camu powder. This smoothie just gave me such a great boost, I had to share it!

All you need is a blender for this delicious raw food papaya smoothie.

For this raw smoothie recipe, all you will need is a high-powered blender. I recommend the Vitamix. It’s one of the top 4 raw food kitchen essentials that I recommend you stock your kitchen with.

That’s all you need for this one!

Health Benefits of Papayas

Papaya is really quite an amazing fruit, and definitely one of my favorites. I wrote more about the health benefits of papaya here. Papayas are:

  • It is rich in antioxidants, flavanoids and carotenes
  • Papaya is an  excellent source of folate and dietary fibre;
  • Papaya contains the digestive enzyme, papain, that literally digests itself without a whole lot of extra work required from our bodies.
  • High immune boosting vitamins C and vitamin A, and also high in vitamin E
  • Is low in calories and sodium
  • High in minerals including potassium and magnesium

Enjoy this high powered raw food smoothie!

Aloha from the Big Island of Hawaii and have a wonderful day 😉
