Remember creamsicles? We suggest trying this levelled-up version made with papaya, paired with perfectly ripe citrus to conjure up memories of the mall. We boosted it with our green tea blend, Rise, and our favourite Rainbo tincture, so it’s the perfect morning smoothie.
Papaya Creamsicle Smoothie
1 frozen banana
½ lime, juiced
1 tsp lime zest
1 inch ginger, peeled and grated
⅓ cup milk of choice
⅓ cup Rise Green Tea blend, chilled
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp hemp seeds and milled flaxseeds, optional
Rainbo tincture of choice, optional
- Steep green tea with hot water. Allow it to cool, then store in a jar and chill in the fridge.
- Slice papaya in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds, then scoop the flesh out and add to a blender.
- Add remaining ingredients. Blend on high speed until creamy.
- Optional - rim a glass with Tajin seasoning. Pour the smoothie into a glass, add an ice cube, and garnish with a slice of lime. What's Tajiin, you wonder? It's a chili-lime salt that is incredible as a rim trim for this smoothie and caesars. We also put it on our watermelon and add it to homemade salsa. You'll find it in the Mexican isle of your local grocery store.
