This is a simple recipe, but needs a juicer and a blender since Papaya don't juice very well. It is however, very refreshing and packed with nutrients and antioxidants.
- 3 large oranges
- 1/2 a medium sized papaya
Juice the oranges in your juicer (a citrus juicer is absolutely fine for this).
Add the orange juice and papaya (skin removed and chopped into cubes) into a blender and whizz up until smooth. You might like to add cracked ice to your blender, or just water to thin out the juice which can become a little thick.
The Papaya is a good source of vitamins A & C, folate and potassium, but it also contributes fibre to the drink (which is why it can become thick and need watering down). Papaya is also rich in papain, a digestive enzyme that may help with digestion, reduce inflammation and help with wound-healing.
