Papaya and Coconut Smoothie
Are you not getting enough fruits and vegetables?! I know I’m not, even though I just snack on a baggie of cucumbers.
Smoothies are a great way to get the daily recommended value of fruits and veggies. If you have a tough time getting these into your diet this is the way to go. Try the Papaya and Coconut Smoothie! You can also try it with fresh mangoes, pine apple and if you prefer instead of coconut milk you can do soy or almond milk.
The flax seed is also optional in the smoothie but it does have great anti inflammatory properties as well as it decreases cholesterol so take advantage of it and add it in!!
1 14oz can coconut milk
1 large fresh papaya, chopped and with no seeds
2-3 tablespoons honey
Juice of 1 lime
1/4 cup flax seed meal
1 cup Greek yogurt
2 cups ice
Blend all the ingredients in a blender for 30 seconds to 1 minute and serve.
P.S 13 days until Spring! I’m pretty stoked!! I’m going to take advantage of the great weather today, and get outside. It’s a toss up, walk/job the stairs OR ride my bike. Maybe I’ll ride my bike to the stairs, and then do the stairs. Okay…maybe not! My glutes are killing me from sissy squats and lunges on the TRX (balancing on one leg that is!)
