The first time I triedpapaya, I thought it smelled like feet. (It really does! Take a whiff for yourself.)After being convinced to explore further, as if that wasn’t bad enough, I tasted it: kinda bitter. What?! How could this perfectly pink succulent looking fruit taste so bad?
So for years I shunned this gorgeous super-fuit simply based on smell and a slightly bitter taste. It wasn’t until I travelled to southeast Asia and India that the one true way to eat papaya was revealed to me…
You gotta cover it – smother it – in fresh squeezed lime.
In this week’s blend, I’ve done just that. Except I experimented with a little power-punch of extra limealicous goodness. Ever tryVega’s Pre-Workout Energizermixes? These are da bomb when you need some kick to get you through a workout. I used to drink it before ashtanga yoga classes and would still feel strong 50-some vinyasas later.
Their lemon-lime flavour was a natural pairing with papaya and strawberry. Add some coconut oil and hemp hearts and you’re off to the races!
