If you've ever thought of blending papaya into a shakes, you're in for a treat. My elder daughter is very fond of papaya and she can have it in any form now but when she was a toddler, she was a very fussy eater and I had to struggle a lot to make her eat, that time shakes and smoothies where great time savers for me as I just had to make her drink a glass full of nutrition and she was done for the morning breakfast .....now she is grown up but shakes and smoothie love is still on ....I have lots of interesting and well tried & tested recipes with me for all those moms whose toddlers are fussy eaters like my daughter:)
First in series is papaya shake .....healthy, tasty and creamy .....papaya is a rich source of antioxidant nutrients such as carotenes, vitamin C and flavonoids; the B vitamins, folate and pantothenic acid; and the minerals, potassium and magnesium; and fiber.
