Easy Vegan Recipe – Papaya Smoothie With Hemp Seeds from Anyreasonsvegan

Looking for healthy treat to make at home for spring and summer? This papaya smoothie recipe with hemp seeds is a great option! Papaya is a semi sweet tropical fruit you must try as soon as possible if you haven’t already. The flavors are heavenly especially when you combine it with a little coconut milk, some agave, mint, and hemp seeds! This drink has the perfect refreshing qualities you want in any vegan smoothie.

The author says, “I adore this papaya smoothie recipe because it’s so vibrant and healthy. It originates from the Tropics of the Americas, Central America, and Mexico. Furthermore 100 grams of papaya contains 43 calories, 1.7 g fiber, 0.47 g protein, and 6% of your daily requirement of Vitamin A. Papaya is also rich in various B vitamins, as well as vitamins C, E, and K. This nutritious tropical fruit also has iron, magnesium, calcium, zinc, and more!

It’s important for me to top my papaya smoothie recipe with about 1 tbsp of hemp seeds! I love hemp seeds they are so tiny yet so nutritious, they are great for plant based diets. They also have a lovely naturally nutty earthy flavor that contrasts the tropical fruit so well. Hemp seeds are rich in protein, fiber, and healthful fatty acids, including omega-3s and omega-6s. They are packed with antioxidants and are also considered a complete protein.”

All you need to make this smoothie is: 3 cups frozen papaya chunks, 1 tbsp orange juice, 1/2 cup coconut milk, 1 tbsp agave nectar, 3 mint leafs, and 3 tbsp hemp seeds. These portions will make 3 servings. I like to top each serving with some mint leafs because it adds a refreshing and distinct flavor like none other!

This papaya smoothie recipe is so simple to make just start by prepping your papaya chunks and freezing them overnight. Then combine them with coconut milk and orange juice in your blender and blend it smooth. Pour the it into 3 separate cups and top each one with mint and hemp seeds. Serve them immediately as well for the best texture and temperature.
