Looking for a tasty and power-packed way to start your day? This healthy smoothie is sure to chase away those early morning blues…
1 medium papaya, peeled and pips removed (that’s pawpaw to my none British friends!)
1 kiwi fruit, peeled
14 cashew nuts
30ml protein powder (Use hemp or pea for vegan/dairy free option)
200ml water (adjust amount to suit how thick/thin you like your smoothy)
Ice cubes (optional)
Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Serve immediately, or pack into a flask and take to work for breakfast-on-the-go.
Tip: I like to freeze left over papaya when it is perfectly ripe. This way you can add to smoothies instead of ice cubes and none gets wasted!
This is a dairy-free gluten-free smoothie provided that a milk-free protein powder is used.
Did you know?
Kiwi fruit contains actinidain, a protein-dissolving enzyme that aids digestion.
Kiwi fruits are high in potassium, which helps keep your electrolytes in balance and helps maintain your blood pressure.
Kiwi fruit is very high in vitamin C, which, along with it’s unique combination of antioxidants, helps boost your immunity.
