Kickstart your day with this delicious smoothie packed with the goodness of papaya, ginger and oats! The citrusy orange juice adds a zesty flavor making this smoothie even better!
We all know the health benefits of papaya, this tropical & luscious fruit is a rich source of antioxidants along with other minerals. I’ve added ginger to this smoothie to boost its nutritional benefits . Ginger is known to relieve digestive issues, reduce inflammation & nausea along with so many other benefits. And the added bonus that makes this smoothie healthier is the inclusion of oats , providing some additional dietary fiber along with the beneficiary and heart healthy soluble fibers from papaya. Overall this smoothie is packed with healthy ingredients , that will sure put a good start to your day:)

1/2 cup non fat yogurt
1/4- 1/2 inch ginger
