The papaya fruit, also known as the paw paw, is one of my favorite tropical fruits. Often overlooked for the more often used mango, lets not forget this tasty and cooling fruit which also happens to be a good source of fiber, potassium, vitamin A, vitamin C, and folate. Papayas seeds are anti-parasitic, the meat can be used in home made face cleansing recipes, and if you live in Australia you are no doubt familiar with paw paw first aid cream. Today however lets keep it simple and use this fruit to make a smoothie for a cooling summer drink.
