Does last night’s sumptuous dinner left you full next morning? Sip on Papaya smoothie and de-bloat! The papain enzyme in papaya does the trick by boosting digestion while its antioxidants keep the cancer-causing free radicals at bay. The musky flavor of papaya is an added bonus and will surely brighten up the day.
I replaced sugar with honey to cut down on calories and my sweet tooth was far from complaining. A dash of black pepper spices it up and gives a magical touch to this elixir.
Have it for breakfast or snack on it between meals, this papaya smoothie will surely make you happy any time.
