Check out this recipe, I've just come across it and can't wait to give it a try. Papaya is something I often overlook in the supermarket, but these days it's easy to find as indeed is coconut. I've read so many positive things about Papaya and Coconut seems to have so many amazing health benefits (in moderation as with everything). Let me know if you try and what you think! I'll report back when I've given it a go!
I found the recipe at this link:
Our health depends on a balance of so many different factors, our mental health is impacted by our nutrient intake as well as how we balance our emotions, our schedule, our exercise routine, our workload and our relationships.
Something as simple as sipping water regularly can have a dramatic impact on our overall health.
Our health is the most important thing in our lives, if we neglect any aspect of our health it impacts every moment of our life and ultimately it may impact our loved ones and indeed everyone we encounter. What are you prepared to try today to improve your health? Whether it's going for a lunchtime walk, making a healthier lunch choice or calling a friend for a nice chat, how are you taking care of yourself today?
For me, I've taken the dog for a long walk, I'm going to spend some quality time with my daughter later and then to cap it off I'll be buying the ingredients for my very first Coconut Papaya Smoothie!
Update: (next day)
I went, I shopped and after MUCH hammering and frustration I even managed to conquer a coconut!
My verdict on this recipe is................ Meh!
Papaya has a very distinctive flavour, and one that I suspect if you haven't grown up with it's not going to be easy to develop a taste for. This particular recipe is not for me. I will definitely use the remainder of the Papaya but in combination with other ingredients e.g. I'll add blueberries to balance the flavour, and perhaps a little coconut oil. The coconut milk is not for my palet particularly in combination with the Papaya (it was in my mind akin to drinking hand soap, in consistency and flavour), and the effort of preparing a whole coconut makes this too impractical to be worth it, so my tip is to source some prepared coconut if you're going to go for it (they didn't have that particular option at the supermarket I went to, mores the pity!) This particular combination would definitely be a slowly acquired taste, it was the number one trending health recipe yesterday so go figure! Personally I'll rate it a 2 out of 5 for great health benefits, but pretty ordinary taste. It was a fun experiment and I will use the ingredients combined with other options. The cracking of the coconut did provide me with some comedy gold of the slapstick variety...
Bottom line: I appreciate the humble banana more than ever :)
