My family loves papaya smoothies. And we’re not the only ones! Everyone I know who tries these smoothies is hooked instantly! With the warmer weather, comes the need for cooler drinks.


"Papaya is a fruit that I never buy, and I purposely bought it for this recipe. The combination of all these flavors are amazing! I froze the papaya so I wouldn't have to add ice and this is one of the best smoothies I've ever had! This is great for breakfast or a snack." -(Natalie)

This smoothie made with juicy, fresh papaya will have your taste buds cooling off from the first sip! Enjoy it in the morning for breakfast, or for a mid-afternoon snack. Papaya is a tropical fruit that tastes like a cross between cantaloupe and honeydew melon. It has lots of nutrients, including vitamin C and potassium, as well as fiber. It’s also high in antioxidants that help fight free radicals in the body.

Ingredient List:


You can make this smoothie with fresh or frozen papaya, but I recommend frozen because it makes the drink colder and thicker. If you don’t have a blender, you can use an immersion blender to puree the ingredients together.

  • 2 cups fresh papaya, cubed (cantaloupe or mango can be substituted)

  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

  • 1 TBSP shredded coconut

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 1/2 cup ice cubes

  • 1 serving vanilla protein

Just one simple step!
