Smoothie Bowl: Papaya Mangosteen Sunrise

Papaya, Coconut & Mangosteen Smoothie Bowl


The Papaya or Pawpaw is probably one of the fruit I eat the least, but when I do it’s one of my many rare food pleasures. The sweet soft, tender flesh is high in vitamin C, and A as well as a good source of potassium, B vitamins, amino acids and enzymes which aid in digestion. I topped this Papaya smoothie bowl with a Cardamom Fig gluten-Free granola and Young Thai coconut shreds.

I love being able to find young Thai coconuts. I use the coconut water in my smoothies and shred the meat after freezing it.


Since it’s hard for me to find the actual mangosteen fruit, I jumped at the opportunity to try it in powder form.  Mangosteen is antioxidant rich, and growing popular superfood.

I always thought I was someone who welcomed change, but clearly I may not be her, because I purchased a new blender two months ago, and still continue to use the old one.

Meanwhile, the new blender sits unopened in the corner of the kitchen. I questioned why I even bought it, such goes life. I will finally take it out the box soon, though.


I added vanilla bean paste, simply because everything taste better with vanilla.
