Papaya and Watermelon Smoothie- Smoothie rich in Antioxidants and Vitamin-C

                             Almost in every home, kitchen experimenting starts when the kids runs out of a healthy ingredient. This happens in my home too, again with a grown up kid, my husband. Before my kid says no to a healthy ingredient, my husband stands before her to say no. I really have to think of combinations when it comes to fruits and veges. Papaya falls on the above kind.

                  The unusual odour of papaya may turn off many. But still it has good source of antioxidants, vitamin C, folate, potassium, fiber and vitamins A, E and K.The lycopene content of papaya prevents cancer too. Watermelon is also similar to papaya with lots of antioxidants and many more nutrients. Hence tried making a healthy smoothie with papaya and melon, which has no loss of fibre as well.

Prep time 15 mins
Cooking time Nil


1 cup Papaya (Deseeded and Chopped) 
1 cup Watermelon (Deseeded and Chopped)  
1 tbsp Honey (optional)


1.  Leave off skin( green color). Deseed the papaya and watermelon and chop it.

2. Then in a blender put the chopped melon and papaya and blend it until smooth. Add honey also if needed.

3. Transfer it to a container. Now the papaya and watermelon smoothie is ready to be served.If necessary add ice cubes.

                              After making this smoothie, I just loved the color of it, that thinking of to buy a saree in the same color.
