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.

Turmeric Papaya Smoothie

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!
