Papaya Banana Silken Smoothie


Don't judge a fruit by its outward appearance,holds true with this warm and exotic tropical fruit with beauty skin deep.

I had tasted dried sweet papaya before but never bought a whole fruit home.The ripe papaya with hues of pretty peach color is deliciously sweet with soft buttery texture,ideal in smoothies,milk shakes and fruit salads.

The enzyme called papain present in papaya(concentrated in raw fruit) is used for making digestive dietary supplements.The richness in Vitamin C makes it a powerful antioxidant fruit,also used in range of beauty products.



The pearly black seeds with intense peppery punch,can be ground and used in salad dressings and sauce.Looks good as garnish on the silken smoothie,except that it was way too spicy for my taste buds, had to unpleasantly fish them out.

I am impressed with your site. I love alkaline fruits. However, I do not like mixing fruits with anything, not even soy milk and especially not dairy milk.

Thank you all.
Shaikh,
Dairy milk will also be good.

Parasram,
milk can be skipped ,use any fruit juice instead.
