Tropical Papaya Smoothie 

There’s nothing like some freshly cut papaya to take me back to my 8-year old self, still living in Mexico. Its richness and almost creamy texture is all I need to put me in a good mood. But how much square-cut papaya can a girl really eat? So I tossed it in a blender with other tropical foods and created  a delicious breakfast smoothie. Not only was it tasty and super satisfying, but it was a great antidote to this severely hot summer  day. 


  • 1/2 ripe papaya 
  • 1/2 cup milk of your choice (I use Lactaid)
  • 1 frozen banana 
  • 1 1/2 tsb chia seeds 


  1. Peel the papaya, cut in half and remove the seeds. 
  2. Roughly cut half of the papaya into squares and store the other half in the fridge (or eat that half, too. Yolo.) 
  3. Blend the papaya, banana, milk and ice. 
  4. Pour it into a cup, add chia seeds, stir with a straw and ENJOY!
