Orange, Papaya, Butternut and Chai Smoothie


I made a smoothie with butternut !!!!!

This smoothie, is out of this world, and how dynamic is the colour ??? Β I know, all that orange, just so bright and vibrant. I think this smoothie is screeeaming summer…yes, it’s heading for summertime here…so I selfishly will be enjoying the sunshine whilst a lot of you will be curled up in front of a heater, apologies, in fact double apologies, as that is how bad I am feeling 😦 .

So anyway, of course I made this and loved it. Β I actually had to make another, and it has been on the top of my list of fave smoothies, I am not going to lie !!!


Orange, Papaya, Butternut and Chia Smoothie

Preparation time: Β 8 minutes

Makes just over 1 cup


1/2 cup (125 millilitres) roasted, mashed butternut

50 millilitres orange/mango juice

1/2 freshly squeezed orange juice

1 cup (250 millilitres) chopped papaya

1 Tablespoon (15 millilitres) chia seeds


Put all the above ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth and the consistency you like.

Enjoy πŸ™‚

NB* Β The above ingredients can be approximate. Β There is no hard and fast rule when doing my kind of smoothie, as it is really all about your taste, and the consistency that you like.

  1. Oh I thought this was a chai (as in Tea in India) recipe looking at your recipe title! πŸ™‚ And then I realized this is a chia based smoothie – yay! *not a big fan of tea you see* Would love to try this sometime πŸ™‚

  2. That looks great, Lynne. I’m not a fan of papaya, but I bet mango would be good, too. You are heading into summer – I’m a little jealous. We are into the rainy season. 2 weeks down, 30 to go! Ha ha. Thanks for the recipe idea.
