Papaya Juice

Make your own fresh Papaya Juice, it’s not as hard as it sounds. The smooth tropical flavor the papaya juice over ice will keep you sipping. This morning I woke up craving that papaya juice I had everyday in Mexico on my last trip. Figuring out how to cut the fresh papaya was the hardest part, little water and in the blender I felt like I was back on my trip.

Not realizing the great health benefits of Papaya, no wonder I drank it everyday on my trip and should probably keep drinking it everyday. My body was craving the vitamin A, B and C that are off the charts in Papaya. Helping with all kinds of hangovers and poor diet depletions. The fiber and digestive enzymes in Papaya are also something to brag about, keeping things moving and your gut intact. Companies actually make it into pills and sell it to you as papain the active part as digestive enzymes naturally found in papaya. I personally would rather drink it if from the source. The Papain can reduce inflammation, heal burns like sunburn and reduce soreness like -I should not have ran 5 miles today, I’m out of shape.  Last but not least, Folate, yes like Folic acid the one your OBY wants you to get you take when you are thinking about or trying to have a little one. If I had accidentally gotten knocked up in Mexico lI could have told doctor folic acid covered covered, I had papaya juice for breakfast…good thing that did not happen.

Check out this recipe at home for yourself for health or just good fresh juice. Papayas are so popular now because of soft, buttery sweet flavor, you can find them at most grocery stores. Yellow, brownish exterior with a orange interior with black round seeds. Buy the one that is soft to the touch. The juice I made today there were even a few brown spots and the juice was super flavorful. Most of the papaya you buy comes from Mexico where it is a native plant, the tropical climate means it is almost always in season. When I was in Hawaii they swear the Hawaii papaya is the best, try them all and decide for yourself.
