Smoothie making 101: Nix the papaya

Giving papaya one more chance in the latest concoction: kale with pineapple and papaya.

Giving papaya one more chance in the latest concoction: kale with pineapple and papaya.

Okay so I know that in a previous smoothie recipe I said that the papaya I added gave the smoothie a delicious flavor. However, as I continued to sample this concoction in larger amounts throughout the day, I’ve decided I was wrong, and I want to apologize if it touched your tongue.

I decided to give papaya one more shot because it is actually really good for you, and the whole point of chugging my greens is to improve my health, so I thought I’d try it with something else — this time I tried kale with pineapple and papaya.

Because let’s be honest, pineapple is a godsend and will make everything taste better. Unfortunately, not even pineapple could defeat the beast that is the papaya.

Reasons I hate papaya:

  1. It smells funky.
  2. It’s a pain to cut up.
  3. It’s mushy.
  4. It doesn’t even taste good — not even disguised in a yummy pineapple smoothie.

Do you have a pro-papaya case? Because I’d love to hear one. Or even a smoothie recipe that can make me like the papaya. Let me know in the comments!
