Papaya smoothie bowls

Ingredients: (serves 2)

  • 1 long papaya

Pink smoothie:

  • 1 beetroot, cooked
  • 1 handful of frozen blueberries
  • 1 banana
  • A few tbsp greek style yoghurt, 0% fat (or dairy free yoghurt, if vegan)
  • A squeeze of honey
  • Papaya flesh (see below)

Green smoothie:

  • 1 handful kale
  • 1 handful spinach
  • 1 banana
  • A few tbsp of coconut milk
  • A squeeze of honey
  • Papaya flesh (see below)

Toppings:

  • Black chia seeds
  • Raspberries
  • Blueberries
  • Pomegranate seeds
  • Toasted/ flaked/ desiccated coconut

Method:

  1. Wash the papaya and cut in half.img_3032img_3067
  2. Remove the seeds from the papaya and remove some of the flesh (save for later). The easiest way to do this is to use a teaspoon.img_3068IMG_3038.JPG
  3. Blend all the ingredients together for either the pink or green smoothie. Make sure the mixture is not too runny as you will need to eat it with a spoon. Add some ice cubes if the mixture is too runny.img_3042img_3043
  4. Pour the smoothie into the papaya halves.img_3069
  5. Top with any toppings that you like.IMG_3070.JPGIMG_3073.JPGI recently made a new version by blending a frozen tropical fruit mix with coconut water to make a tropical papaya smoothie bowl.
