Papaya Banana Silken smoothie

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

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.The debut papaya had made a wonderful layer in my tropical fruit pops and a topping on the risotto ,and finally this luscious smoothie.

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.

Recipe : Papaya Banana Silken smoothie

serves 3
1/2 a medium papaya ,peeled ,seeded and cubed
1 ripe banana
1/2 cup soy milk
2 tablespoon agave nectar

My passion for tantalizing tropical fruits continues with perfectly nourishing papayas.Share yours at Health Nut Challenge 7: Tropical Temptations.
