Yellow Smoothie – Sunshine and Goodness!
Nothing says bright pick-me-up like this yellow smoothie!
I’ve previously praised paw paw and its unique ability to aid digestion and to give a glutened gut a helping hand (see: Soothie Smoothie – good for a glutened gut) Once again paw paw makes an appearance in this refreshing antioxidant explosion of a smoothie.
Accompanying the amazing paw paw are two other digestion helpers, namely the soluble fibre-rich mango and the anti-spasmodic mint.
The anti-oxidant boosters are represented in the shape of juicy mandarins and sweet nectarines, as well as the ever-fresh watermelon.
This smoothie is sure to give you an uplifting start to the day, or a brightening wake-up to re-energize you in the early afternoon!
Half a ripe mango
One mandarin (peeled)
5 mint leaves
Two sizable chunks of sweet watermelon
One two cm thick slice of a whole paw paw (seeds removed)
Ice cubes to taste
This mixture won’t need any juice added as the watermelon gives more than enough liquid.
The Yellow Smoothie boasts a smooth and almost tropical flavour. Mandarin gives a milder and sweeter taste than that of an orange, and both the mango and the paw paw add a creamy texture.
A super delicious and refreshing energiser!
