Smoothie of the Day: Papaya Grapefruit Smoothie with Lime

This is a fantastic smoothie for boosting your energy levels naturally without caffeine.  It’s also full of nutrients that include biotin, folic acid, vitamin C, magnesium, potassium, and calcium. Eating papayas can improve the clarity and texture of your skin, lessen the severity of cold and flu symptoms, and help to promote a healthy digestive system. Raspberries are a good source of ellagic acid which helps to destroy free radicals responsible for causing harm to our bodies. It has been shown that grapefruits help reduce cholesterol while boosting immunity. I like to use kefir in this smoothie (check out Green Valley Organics and all their awesome kefir varieties) for a nice boost of probiotics. Give this recipe a try!
