When we think about eating more healthy fruits and veggies, we tend to focus on eating more greens. Greens are great, what about the other colors?
A commonly neglected but important veggie and fruit color is orange. Orange fruits and veggies are loaded with beta-carotene, zeaxanthin, flavonoids, lycopene, potassium and vitamin C. Orange can be just as nutritious as green! A great way to pack your day with nutritious orange fruits and veggies is to make a smoothie. If you are looking for a delicious recipe, look no further than this carrot papaya smoothie recipe . It combines the orange power of carrots and deliciousness of papaya to make an amazing flavor profile and an incredibly nutritious shake.
Carrots are naturally sweet, but contrary to popular belief they do not have a huge amount of calories or carbohydrates. They are an amazing source of the antioxidants lycopene and beta-carotene, both of which are needed for good eyesight.
Papaya was called the “fruit of the angels” by Christopher Columbus. This mild-tasting orange tropical fruit is lightly sweet but adds a delicious tropical flavor to this papaya smoothie recipe . In addition to beta-carotene, vitamin C and folate, papaya contains a unique enzyme called papain that helps improve digestion.
The whey protein in this papaya smoothie recipe will help balance out the carbohydrates in the carrots and papaya, so you will stay satisfied for longer. The added protein makes this smoothie a well-balanced snack.
Finally, consider adding a cup of your favorite berries for a more flavorful yet mildly sweet smoothie.
For all Vital Whey Recipes
To minimize potential damage to the fragile protein components, please take the following into consideration:
- Avoid highly acidic fruits or juices (citrus, pineapple, kefir, etc).
- Avoid adding whey to any HOT liquids.
Our whey is minimally processed and it is best to avoid adding excess acid or heat within your recipe.
