Papaya Smoothie for GERD & Gastroparesis (Vegan + Dairy Free + Gluten Free + Low FODMAP)

Georgie xoxo
Papaya is a sweet, tropical fruit that is potent beyond words with several health benefits.  With enzymes called papain, Payaya helps improve digestion and reduces heartburn.
Other than helping with digestion and heartburn, it is also known to fight against heart diseases, diabetes, cancer, bone health and asthma. It contains vitamin K, beta-carotene, calcium and is a rich source of vitamin A too.
Here I'm blending it with plant mylk and vanilla for a easy, powerful punch of fruit and sweetness to instantly soothe you.
