I had this a few minutes ago for breakfast, and it was so tasty that I preempted the beautiful cake I had planned to post and used this one instead:
It was the perfect post-run breakfast.
This is my first adventure using papaya personally. They are kind of expensive, but different and fun – the kind of fruit that is just a great flavor and lends itself well to drinks – boozy or otherwise. Since it is not even 8:30 yet, this is an “otherwise.”
In case you are wondering, this is what a papaya looks like:
The one we bought was about a foot long, but it was very easy to slice and I just used a spoon to scoop the fruit out. It is pretty soft when ripe – more so than say, a cantaloupe.
Here’s what you need for two 10 oz-ish servings of smoothie:
- Fruit from 1/2 a large papaya
- About 1/2 cup cranberry 100% juice blend (we used cran-grape)
- 2 Tbsp. lime juice
- 2 cups ice
- 1/2-3/4 cup Greek yogurt
Add all ingredients to your blender, making sure the ice goes in last. Use the pulse function to puree – this should take less than a minute! Helloooo healthy breakfast!
