Kids love smoothies. It’s like a dessert to them, or just the fact that it’s in a cup with a straw is sometimes so much more appealing to them. Especially when you want them to eat a more exotic fruit like a papaya. Maybe not so exotic to us, but sometimes very strange to children. According to my kids the papaya is: slimey, eww, wet, etc. (I’m sure you get the point). Now take that same fruit turn it into a smoothie and stick a straw in it and voila! “Oooh mommy this is good.”

So this is what you do:

Cut a papaya in four slices (slice it long not across if that makes sense). With a knife just gently brush the seeds off (into a bowl because you can dry them and plant them later). Then with your knife slice the skin off and place papaya into blender. About 2 cups of vanilla almond milk, and 1 serving of vanilla yogurt. For children you might be able to get away with no sugar because of the vanilla yogurt but if you feel the need just add two table spoons (preferably one ) of sugar. Blend with half a cup of ice and enjoy! Very simple and easy really can’t go wrong 🙂
