vegan papaya breakfast boats

vegan papaya breakfast boats

 

There's no better way to start your day than enjoying some juicy red papayas, filled with fruit, pretty flowers, and topped with a sweet pink pitaya smoothie sauce poured all over!

Why you should get more papaya in your diet
Papaya is one of the most nutrient dense and healing fruits on the planet. It is extremely high in beta carotene, vitamins C & A, and minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, potassium, and iron. It is a phenomenal fruit for helping to heal any type of digestive disorder. Papaya has a soothing, cleansing effect on the digestive tract and gently removes toxic debris while decreasing swelling and inflammation. Its dense nutrient value also provides the body with all the essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, protein, and essential fatty acids it needs to rebuild muscles, tissues, bones, and organs.

Papaya is the number-one fruit for digestibility. Each papaya contains more than 500 powerful digestive enzymes that support the pancreas, aid digestion, and mend the walls of the intestinal tract, reducing inflammation and preventing scar tissue from forming there. Papaya also contains potent coenzymes that enhance the alkalinity inside the intestinal tract.

Papaya is also a miracle worker for the skin. This fruit has anti-wrinkle, 'fountain-of-youth' properties due to its high content of vitamins, minerals, and most important, caratenoids. Not only can it help your skin glow again, it can also clear up eczema, psoriasis, and acne. Get a dose of papaya in Ere Perez’s papaya sos marmalade! Getting lots of papaya in my diet, especially in the mornings for breakfast after my big green juice, has immensely helped me heal from acne, eczema, digestive discomfort and bloating. I encourage you to try them too!


 ingredients:
1 ripe papaya
1 cup blueberries
1 ripe banana
1/4 cup frozen or fresh pink pitaya
1/4 cup coconut water
5-6 edible pansy or viola flowers



method:
1. Cut your ripe papaya in half and using a spoon, scoop out the seeds.
2. Peel your ripe banana and thinly slice it into round pieces. Layer the sliced banana pieces across the inside edges of both papaya halves (save a little bit of banana to make the pink pitaya 'smoothie sauce').
3. Place your blueberries next to the banana and inside the papaya where you scooped out the seeds.
4. For the pink pitaya 'smoothie sauce' blend your pink pitaya, coconut water, and a little bit of banana in a blender to create the sauce then drizzle over each papaya half.
5. Decorate your breakfast papaya boats with the edible flowers (home grown is always best, but you can purchase them from farmers markets or health food stores).
