Pum’s favourite recipes…Perfect Papaya Green Smoothie

Papaya is such an amazing fruit and is so good for you.  The health benefits are massive including lowering cholesterol, aiding weight-loss, improving eye-health and helping digestion.

Because papaya has a more delicate and neutral taste, it goes well with so many different combinations of ingredients.  I like to pair it with other slightly less strong flavoured ingredients (raw spinach, cucumber and banana) and let cinnamon and ginger dominate.  However pairing papaya with pineapple or mango would make it wonderfully tropical and delicious too!
