Papayas! Papayas are in abundance at the moment in my little part of the world and I am loving every moment of it. It is among one of my favorite fruits and I am delighted to bring you another recipe using this magical ingredient.
If you have been following us here at Vegan.io for a while, you will have noticed that I am a smoothie fanatic. And if you haven’t been with us for long, you will soon discover this. To say I am obsessed would be a pretty fair call. But I wanted to do something a little different this time. Instead of bringing you another sweet smoothie recipe, I mixed things up to create a powerhouse that is not only healthy, but rich in texture and taste.
Smoothies are a very quick and easy way to get a great boost of nutrients, a great source of essential vitamins and minerals, as well as satisfying an empty tummy. They also make for great alternatives for busy morning people who struggle for time to eat, parents that are on the go, or for quick and easy snack for the slightly obsessed like me.
To make this recipe, you will need 5 ingredients and 5 minutes.
Our 5 ingredients used in this recipe include papaya, peanut butter, dates, lamb’s lettuce, and cinnamon. From these ingredients, we are offered a good source of various antioxidants, magnesium, fiber, potassium, copper, vitamin A, and protein (to name a few).
The papaya peanut butter lamb’s lettuce smoothie is the perfect snack for any time of the day because it’s:
Smoothies are best consumed soon after making. Storing them for too long will turn them into bland, sometimes clumpy, odd tasting drinks. So I highly recommend having them fresh. However, if you do need to store any smoothie, simply place it in an airtight container (or jar/bottle) and place it in the fridge for no longer than 24 hours.
And that about wraps it up for today! I hope you enjoy this recipe and be sure to share your thoughts about it with me – I love hearing from you. Happy blending my friends! Liked this recipe?
