The 'Minimalist Baker' blog recently published a recipe for a healthy papaya smoothie made from coconut milk. During the winter months, many consumers opt for heartier breakfast options such as porridge. However, this recipe provides a more invigorating way to start the day for those that need an extra energy boost in the early morning hours.

The DIY papaya smoothie is highly nutritious and extremely simple to make. The base of the smoothie consists of a creamy combination of carrot juice and light coconut milk. The coconut milk serves as a dairy-free base, while the carrot juice adds extra nutrients. Banana is then added for natural sweetness, while papaya delivers vitamin C, antioxidants and folate. Finally, the smoothie is finished with lime juice and minced ginger, which add an invigorating zing to the drink.

Because the recipe is gluten-free and vegan-friendly, it serves as the perfect breakfast option for health-conscious consumers.
