Papayas are bananas are both fantastic fruits and when you put them together things get even better. Of course, the easiest and tastiest way to do this is by creating a smoothie to drink.

The benefits of papaya include the fact that it is a source of fibre and can help you maintain a healthy colon and avoid constipation. They also give us a lot of vitamin C and vitamin E.

As for bananas, these incredibly healthy fruits provide a huge amount of potassium and fibre, as well as vitamin C and vitamin B. Like papaya, bananas contain few calories. 

All of this means that your papaya and banana smoothie offers a way of filling up and getting plenty of energy without taking on board too many calories. This makes it an ideal way to start the day or to get an energy boost later on. The vitamins contained in this smoothie will also help to boost your immune system and help to give you healthy, glowing skin.
