High Protein, Enzyme-Rich Goodness

Papaya cream smoothie

By Grace Van Berkum R.H.N.

Often overlooked in the fruit section this tropical fruit is ranked as one of the most nutritious fruits in the world. Papaya boasts high amounts of vitamin C, potassium, beta carotene, lycopene, and anti-aging enzymes.

 

2 cups cubed papaya

1 ripe banana

1 tbsp tahini

1 scoop vanilla protein powder

1 tsp cinnamon

2-3 cups water

handful of ice

 

Blend until smooth.

 

Tahini is a thick paste made from ground sesame seeds, making for a rich and creamy smoothie without the dairy. It offers high amounts of B vitamins, calcium, and protein and is easy to digest
