Golden Glow Smoothie

Golden Glow Smoothie

This delicious papaya-based smoothie, high in Vitamins C & A, is an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and digestive aid. Try tasty variations by substituting mango or a combination of banana and kale for the papaya.

Serving Size: 1-2



Place all ingredients in blender. Pulse several times to break up the ice cubes, then blend until smooth.


  1. Dampen facial skin (or use immediately after bathing).
  2. Take ½ of the peels (1/4 of the papaya) and vigorously rub onto your face.
  3. Leave on your skin for 2 minutes – do not allow to dry – then rinse with tepid water and apply your usual moisturizer.

You should see an immediate glow, thanks to the alpha-hydroxy acids and enzymes in the papaya flesh and peel which break down dead skin cells. Repeat this treatment once a week to achieve improvement in your skin’s tone and appearance and the lightening of dark areas due to sun exposure. If you have very sensitive skin use papaya cautiously and discontinue immediately if your skin becomes irritated.
