Turmeric Papaya Smoothie
Turmeric Papaya Smoothie – an amazing combination of flavors makes this healthy drink super delicious.
It takes 5 minutes to make this turmeric papaya smoothie. And about 5 more to drink it.
I love smoothies and used to make one every day, but haven’t been drinking them a lot recently. I just prefer to eat fresh fruit.
Occasionally I’ll decide to try a flavor combination in a smoothie and this is how this Turmeric Papaya Smoothie was created.
I’ve mentioned about turmeric before and also shared this Turmeric chicken quinoa salad and these turmeric roasted potatoes.
If you are not a fan of turmeric, you can skip it. The smoothie will still taste delicious. But turmeric is a powerful herb with healing properties, and I personally think everyone should try it.
This Turmeric Papaya Smoothie is great for a light and nutritious breakfast. Look at this color, it screams summer to me.
I used papaya, ripe banana (preferably frozen), almond milk, sweetener and turmeric. It is very easy to make, creamy and super delicious.
I know some people don’t like papaya… That smell… But I actually like it.
Papaya is rich in antioxidants, vitamin C and fiber. It is very low in calories, one cup contains just around 40 calories, which makes it the perfect fruit snack for me.
When choosing a papaya at the store, make sure you pick one that is not bruised if you can find and afford it, buy an organic papaya, it just tastes better and sweeter.
Hope you get to try it. Have a great weekend!

I’m in love with that gorgeous color, Mira! I get on smoothie kicks, and then I stop making them, so I need to get back to them and try this. I love that you used papaya and turmeric. Sounds so good!
I haven’t had papaya in the LONGEST time and this smoothie is seriously looking so amazing right now, Mira! LOVE that color so much!
Love papaya! The combination with turmeric is delicious!
Can I make it , store it in the fridge and drink it next day
Hi, Yes, you can, but smoothies taste best at the time they are made. It only takes 2 minutes to prepare.
Awesome drink.. Shared recipe with family and got wonderful raves.. Keep the smoothie recipes coming
Absolutely delicious! Maybe a little easier on the turmeric if you’re not used to the taste.
Great! Glad you like it Luz!
Made this smoothie and since I didn’t have ice cubes, it worked out well, I added more almond milk. No lime/lemon juice either. Overall, it tastes delicious.
I try today but without the honey was delicious. The sweetnees for papaya and banana was a great flavor.
Simple, healthy, but refreshingly good. Thanks for the recipe!
Had this smoothie today and it was delicious! I’m planning to try it as a smoothie bowl next time around with some fresh berries and seeds on top
Very nice ,yummy
This smoothie is sooo good!!! Tastes like a tropical smoothie.
Yummy and sweet! Next time I will use only 1 T. of honey. I tamed the sweetness by adding some non-dairy yogurt.
Oh my gosh, is this ever good! I meant to take a taster’s sip and downed the entire glass.
When you say better with a frozen banana, do you mean you use the frozen banana straight up? Or do you let it thaw out (more juicy, less solid)?
It is best if the banana is cut into pieces, then frozen. When making the smoothie, use the frozen (not thawed) banana chunks.
This smoothie is so, so good. Yes, it’s better with the frozen banana, but I also added 1 tabs. of almonds, walnuts, and chia seeds. It gave it a nutty taste. I love ❤️ tumeric, so I was very happy to see this recipe, thank you for printing it.
How big is a large banana? Would you weigh a peeled large banana and say the weight in the comments?
180 grams without the peel
