Quick & Easy Papaya Guava Chia Granita

Papaya Guava Chia Granita… sounds delicious, right?

Spring is officially here and all I can think about are the HOT and SUNNY summer days approaching.

Ever since David and I just moved from the Pacific Northwest to Texas I wanted to come up with a healthy and refreshing snack/dessert for when I crave sweets while dealing with this southern heat.

It’s as simple as this…

I blended up a small bag of frozen papaya (about 21 oz) with chia seeds (1-2 tablespoons) and guava nectar (to taste) and got THIS tropical sunshine in a cup.

That’s right. Just 3 ingredients and you’re ready to chill in the warmer temperatures. It can’t get simpler than that!

Having worked with tea for many years I have a propensity for looking up health benefits of different ingredients, so here are some really great benefits you can get from papayas:

◊ Aids kidney health

◊ Packed with Vitamin A for healthy eyes

◊ Great for Heart-health

◊ Protects against skin damage

◊ Loaded with antioxidants

All these things are super important to me! Also, papayas are said to improve digestion because it contains the papain enzyme, which can make protein easier to digest.

Let’s not forget chia seeds, which are a great source of Omega-3 Fatty Acids, fiber & protein

This quick, easy, yummy, and healthy recipe was brought to you by ME for a happy weekend! Have as a small refresher like me or as use it as the base of a smoothie bowl. I know you’ll thank me later!
