A Girl & Her Food: Papaya Smoothie


Papaya Smoothie

I have been fighting a cold in 100 degree weather. UGH! In order to feel better and get healthy, I made an appointment with my acupuncturist, Lexi, for an acupuncture session and cupping. She is amazing at what she does and I strongly believe in her chinese medicine treatments.  After my session, I started to feel better, and craved a smoothie. I had Mexican papaya on hand, and I didn't want it to go to waste. It is a rejuvenating fruit, and it helps your body receive the maximum level of nutrients to aid digestion and inflammation.   Cheers to my health and to Lexi!  


2-3 cups papaya, seeded and chopped
1/4 cup fresh pineapple juice 
1 lime, juiced


Place all ingredients in a blender. Pulse until well combined.
