Breakfast doesn’t have to be a burden. I try not to offer milk with sugary cereal in the morning. Rather, I try to provide something healthy such as eggs, oatmeal, and smoothies. Here are some other ideas for a healthy easy breakfast:

Ingredients for Red Papaya Yogurt Smoothie

There are only 2 ingredients we use for this smoothie: red papaya and yogurt. We include an optional raw honey ingredient in case you prefer your smoothies to be sweet. I also add raw honey if I make the smoothie for the kids since they like the smoothie to be sweet. I also add raw honey as a healthy ingredient as it brings many nutritious benefits (see the honey section below for more details).

Red Papaya

Red papaya is a healthy fruit. It is rich in antioxidants, folate, Vitamins A and C, fiber, copper, magnesium, potassium, and pantothenic acid. Red papaya boosts immunity, aids digestion, protects the heart, has anticancer properties, reduces inflammation, and helps lower blood sugar levels. For our papaya and yogurt smoothie recipe, we use papaya fruit only. We discard the seeds. Although, the seeds could be edible my family doesn’t like eating them. Also, ensure that the papaya is ripe. Otherwise, you will need to cook the papaya in order to eat it.

Yogurt

The papaya yogurt smoothie is very nutrient-rich. With an ear infection going around so often now, I give my little buddy this yogurt smoothie 30 to 40 minutes after his antibiotic dosage to replenish his good gut bacteria. It is super important to keep his tummy healthy after the antibiotic kills everything in his tummy. I also blend other fruit with yogurt to increase his nutrients with other fruit. Check out the strawberry yogurt smoothie and the peach yogurt smoothie.

In addition to the yogurt’s probiotics, the papaya yogurt smoothie is high in protein, calcium, Vitamins B, and D, probiotics, live cultures, magnesium, phosphorus, iodine, zinc, and potassium. Yogurt nutrients are so many that we dedicated an article just explaining what they are and how they help us thrive. Read more about the yogurt nutrients and their benefits. We also wrote an article about how those nutrients strengthen our bodies. Learn more about how yogurt can benefit your health. Finally, check out our recipe on how to make your own yogurt. It is super easy, quick, and doesn’t require any special equipment.

Raw Honey

Although raw honey is optional in this recipe, adding it to your smoothie can bring nutrients too. We use raw, unfiltered, organic honey. I usually buy a big can from the store and then use glass jars to store it. Read the label and if you see pasteurized or processed honey, just skip it. Many nutrients of this type of honey are removed to increase the shelf life of the honey. A funny fact about honey I read somewhere is that honey can stay good for over 3000 years!

So what exactly honey is rich in? Honey has amino acids, vitamins, minerals, iron, zinc, and antioxidants. It is used as an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antibacterial agent. When I was growing up, we were told to eat one small teaspoon of honey every morning to help with our throat health. Have you seen Steve Ballmer eating honey on stage while talking? Now you know why! Honey will help your throat.

Equipment

For this smoothie, we recommend using the Oyster Blender because it is a powerful blender. If you use a hand blender or a personal blender you may end up with chunks in the smoothie. Besides being careful with the blender, there is nothing else special that you will need for this smoothie. We use a regular cutting board and measuring cup.

Notes

  • For this recipe, we use an oyster blender since it is more powerful. If you use a smaller blender that is less powerful you may end up with some chunks in the smoothie
  • We love using homemade yogurt. Here is the homemade yogurt recipe on how to make it on your own. It only takes a few minutes of your time and doesn’t require special equipment.
  • We add raw honey to this recipe as a sweetener. I found my kids like the smoothie more when I add honey to it.
  • The honey is optional in this recipe, so we do not include it as part of the nutritional facts for this recipe. Also, honey is not keto-friendly so if you are on a keto diet, you may want to substitute honey with some other sweetener if you find the smoothie not sweet enough.
  • I like the smoothie without honey as the papaya has a very nice taste when blended with the yogurt. Try it out without the honey first and then add some sweetener if you don’t like it.
