Kickstart your day with this delicious smoothie packed with the goodness of papaya, ginger and oats! The citrusy orange juice adds a zesty flavor making this smoothie even better!

We all know the health benefits of papaya, this tropical & luscious fruit is a rich source of antioxidants along with other minerals. I’ve added ginger to this smoothie to boost its nutritional benefits . Ginger is known to relieve digestive issues, reduce inflammation & nausea along with so many other benefits. And the added bonus that makes this smoothie healthier is the inclusion of oats , providing some additional dietary fiber along with the beneficiary and heart healthy soluble fibers from papaya. Overall this smoothie is packed with healthy ingredients , that will sure put a good start to your day:)

1 cup chopped papaya

1/2 banana

1/2 cup orange juice

1/2 cup non fat yogurt

1 tablespoon honey , adjust as per desired sweetness

2-3 tablespoonsΒ fast cooking oats

small pinch of salt ( optional)

  1. The night before or a couple of hours earlier , cook oats with 1/4 cup water/milk , add a pinch of salt . When the oats are cooked , set aside to cool or refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. In the blender , place all the ingredients , liquid first then the fruits , blend until well combined. Enjoy!

    Ooh sounds awesome. I have a papaya at home (I actually don’t like it too much but got it since it’s healthy) Have to give this smoothie a try. I love adding ginger to smoothies/ juices too!
