I love papaya and then pineapples are rich in vitamins and minerals plus the enzyme known as bromelain. Bromelain is only found in pineapples and has been studied extensively and found to be quite effective in inhibiting tumor growth, lessen recovery after a surgery, alleviates arthritis and joint pain and can even reduce inflammation. This smoothie is rich in vitamins C and B9 plus minerals like manganese and potassium. It also tastes fabulous thanks to the citrus and the papaya. So, whip up a orange, pineapple, papaya smoothie today! If you want extra orange, substitute juice for the water.
- ½ medium orange, peeled
- ½ cup pineapple, rib removed and cut into chunks
- ½ cup papaya, cubed
- Water to the max line
- Add all ingredients to your large nutribullet cup, saving water for last.
- Once you have filled the cup with water to the fill line, puree ingredients to desired consistency.
- If desired, you can add a cup of your favorite vegetable, cut into 2-inch thick strips.
