The moringa powder pictured above is from my good friend Jeri, creator of Whisper of Yum. Her mother hand-picked, dried, and pulverized the moringa leaves into powder and Jeri gave it to me as a gift —so incredibly sweet of her!

  • Papaya: Make sure your papaya is ripe for the best results.

Common Questions:

How Do You Know When A Papaya Is Ripe? 

You can tell papaya is ripe when the green flesh of the papaya begins to turn yellowish, orange, or red, and soft to touch.

Do You Peel Papaya For Smoothies?

Yes, the best way to prepare papaya for smoothies is to cut the papaya in half lengthwise, scoop out the seeds with a large spoon, and then scoop/cut out the ripe papaya with a spoon or knife.

What fruit goes well with papaya?

Papaya has a very mildly sweet, subtle flavor. It pairs perfectly with mango, pineapple, strawberries, and blueberries.
