Happy Monday! Monday morning are especially difficult the day after daylight savings, don’t you think? This pick-me-up fruit drink is the perfect fix! Vitamin packed, dairy-free, and loaded with vitamins and fiber.

My aunt brought over this beautiful papaya, excited to make this fruit drink for me. If you’ve never tried papaya, it has a soft, buttery, pinkish-orange flesh with a taste similar to cantaloupe, with black seeds in the center which you discard; it’s known for it’s antioxidants and anti-inflammatory effects.

Any restaurant or home you visit in Colombia, where my Mom is from, fresh fruit shakes made with exotic fruits are always on the menu for breakfast or lunch.

Papaya is an excellent fruit because it’s high in Vitamins A and C, folate and potassium. In addition, it is a good source of dietary fiber, vitamin E, and vitamin K.Ā  It reminds me of a cantaloupe, only sweeter and softer. Fresh squeezed oranges were added for added vitamins and sweetness along with bananas to make this the perfect start to any morning.

Since this is made with nothing but just fresh fruit, I’m assuming the Weight Watcher Points are 0, correct me if I’m wrong. Enjoy your day!

    one way of including the fiber from all the fruit would be to add the orange segments instead of just the juice. water could be added if it was too thick.

    We don't like bananas either. We may try it without them or is there something else to add? Maybe using the whole orange rather than the fruit would add some thickness?

  4. Hi~
    I'm not a huge fan of bananas and was wondering if anyone could recommend some other fruit to put in???

    Made this for lunch today! Although I got nowhere near 2 cups of juice from my 2 naval oranges, it was still delicious!

    I hope you won't mind; I did a post on my smoothie blog and credited you and your most wonderful web site!

  6. I ran my all fruit and veggie breakfast smoothie through the recipe builder on WW today. Even though all my ingredients were 0 points, WW said it 5 points. I think you're supposed to eat 3 strawberries in one snack rather than the strawberries with oranges, carrots and kale. Sort of discouraging to me.

  7. Made this for breakfast. It was quick and easy and we all loved it! Thank you for the great recipes, Gina!
