Recipe for Apple-Papaya and Ginger-Papaya Smoothies


Hello Bloggers and all my readers! A very Happy New Year to you all, my heartiest wishes are with you to have a splendid year ahead. I know it’s a bit late but sorry I couldn’t upload any post to greet. I was on a break and breaks are also necessary to have a rejuvenated inception towards joyous expedition of whole year. I think this stint of gap between two posts is longest so far since I started blogging. Nevertheless, I tried and tested various new dishes during this stint. And those left a remarkable flavor on my taste buds will be shared in my future posts.

I thought to give a refreshing start to a fresh year for keeping it even more refreshing and enthusiastic both personally and on blogging platform. Here are two refreshing and lip-smacking smothies’ recipes which will revitalize you on the whole. Both are yummy, instant in making and very startling. Both have common papaya base. Papaya is a good ingredient to form a base for smoothie. It is rich source of vitamin C and has anti- inflammatory properties hence prevent from common cold and advisable to be eaten in winters. It has vitamin A, B- complex, E & K and higher value of Potassium, calcium, magnesium and other minerals too. Its lycopene and carotene contents prevent lung and other oral cancers. It is known as “The fruit of the angels” by Christopher Columbus. Conclusively it can be said as a healthy choice to chose as a base ingredient for smoothie. You can opt it eating in fruit salads or like that too; the thing that to be noted here, you get incorporated with all of its nutrients in your diet. I haven chosen it for smoothie to give a yummy twist to simple sweet flavor of papaya. Let’s go for making smoothies-
