Papaya Lime Refresher

Thanks to everyone who entered the Love-Fed giveaway. The winner who was randomly chosen is Holly Denise Edwards. Congratulations Holly and I hope you enjoy the plant-based and raw dessert recipes in this book.

Today’s recipe is simple and pure. It is a great way to start the day because it is so light and cleansing and perfect for your raw detox diet.

I regard papayas as a true superfood. They are loaded with vitamin C and this smoothie gives you more than 4 times the recommended daily intake!

It works best when you have fully-ripened sweet papayas because the acid from the lime creates a nice balance of flavors. Your papaya should yield easily under pressure over the entire fruit.

If you find your papayas are not sweet enough you could add a little agave nectar to taste.
