I just finished my weekend morning run when I was craving some pineapple. I guess running by the beach got me wishing for something tropical. So I decided to stop by my local fruit stall to get some fruits and fresh coconut water (out of the fruit, not from the can! :)).
I picked out some pretty looking papaya & pineapple and got the aunty to crack open a big, young coconut for me. I brought them home and had this idea to blend a tropical smoothie I love to call Pinepaya Tropical Smoothie (yumms!)
This smoothie is not only a thirst quencher but is rich in vitamins and provides a lot of health benefits (score!). Pineapple and papaya are rich in Vitamin C and papaya helps aid digestion. Coconut water is also a natural isotonic drink, which makes this smoothie especially great as a post workout smoothie or even as a snack. I also added a teaspoon of moringa powder (its highly rich in protein). Well, it's time to get some of that tropical goodness - get the recipe here:
- papaya (1)
- pineapple (1)
- coconut water (1 cup)
- moringa powder (1 teaspoon)
- ice cubes (a handful)
1. Cut your papaya and pineapple into cubes and put into your blender.
