Papaya Smoothie

In no time Madness of March is over, I hope you are all done with your kids Exams Crush. Luckily my kids don't have the concept of final exams yet as they are still little. The sudden hot sun, crazy schedule at work, and the bash of festivals and witnessing some wedding events in March made it hectic and fun for me. Now the month of April begins with more challenges. As keeping the kids safe in this summer and entertaining and keeping them busy in their Holidays time. Here in Bangalore, the schools are closed by March 30th and it is holidays time for kids and challenging for working parents to find the ways and events to keep it fun and entertaining. 

Papaya Smoothie
I think in India we lost the concept of Spring  in seasons, as March already was like summer, And I heard it is going to be the rough summer here this year.  So I am planning to to make and write about summer spirit dishes or beverages in this month. My tip for you, keep your kids also involved while you cook or make healthy dishes so that they will know the importance of healthy eating and it is fun for them to eat what they make. With out any due, let me welcome this month Hot Summer, April with this Cool and Healthy Beverage, Papaya Smoothie!!!

Papaya - 1cup ( cubed and ripe)
Milk - 1 cup
Yogurt - 1/2 cup
Ice Cream - 1/2 cup (vanilla)
Honey - 1 Tbsp
Saffron - 1 tsp
Warm Milk - 1 Tbsp

1. Add Safforn in Warm milk and keep it aside.
2. Blend Papaya and Milk in the blender.
3. Then add, Yogurt, Ice Cream and Honey and blend it once until all the ingredients blends very well.
4. Now transfer this to cups or tumblers add 1 tsp of saffornish milk on top.
5. Chili it until serve it.
Take a Close Peek ..:-)
I like papaya until it becomes too ripe, as we have Papaya tree in the garden here, it has lot of yield. And  I am ending up with lot of ripen papayas even after distributing them to my neighbors. The ripe papaya has some strong smell which makes me turn away to them, and I found this is the best way to eat all those ripe papayas as the safforn avoids that smell and adds nice flavor to it. VJ loves the papaya as ti is, this didn't excite him much. That's even better for me, now i can have his portion as well ;-).
