Papaya Spinach Smoothie

As cold and flu season hits, this smoothie is a delicious way to combat winter sickness.  Packed with nutrients and dressed up with the mellow aromas of vanilla and nutmeg, it is the perfect antidote for all that ails you.


  • 1 stalk of celery
  • 1/4 cup red pepper
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup papaya
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seed
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • dash of nutmeg
  • 1 packet of stevia
  • 1 handful ice


  1. Toss all of the ingredients into a blender (I use a Vitamix) and blend until smooth and creamy.

    wish I had a vitamix! This looks super healthy and fun to eat.

  2. This caught my eye on Health Freak Food. I wanted to let you know that they must set your page in a frame, since their URL, not yours, is not the one that is showing. I’m going to mention this to them and express my displeasure. I think it’s a great site (I’ve just discovered it) but they should direct traffic to you fully. (Perhaps you might want to email them?)
