January comes with the excitement of new resolutions for the New Year. I like challenging myself to try new things, learn new skills, and improve my life. I bet you do, too.

I’ve written in the past about how much easier it is to start with one small resolution, until it becomes a habit, then moving on to another, and maybe trying one new resolution per month throughout the year.

Well, my first microresolution for January 2019, then, is to start each day with a nutritious breakfast. Checkout my first go-to breakfast for January: Papaya Coconut Bionico.

Bionico, known in some parts of México as energético, describes a popular Mexican fruit cocktail topped with granola, coconut, nuts and a vanilla sweet cream, usually made with sweetened condensed milk. My recipe is lighter and faster, though.

My version swaps out the sweetened condensed milk for plain yogurt, deliciously sweetened with Truvía® Spoonable, and flavored with vanilla extract.

If you’re not familiar with Truvía Spoonable, its sweetness comes from stevia leaf extract, and stevia leaf extract comes from the sweet leaves of the stevia plant. So spoon in the sweetness, each serving is zero calories!

Bionicos often involve a mix of several fruits like cantaloupe, strawberries, bananas, honeydew and papaya. I chose to use just papaya for this one, because I love papaya and I can usually find it any time of year. Plus, I wanted to suggest this simplified recipe to make it easier for hurried mornings.

If you make this Papaya Coconut Bionico, be sure to snap a photo and share it with us on social media using the #mamalatinatipsrecipes hashtag. I’d love to see it and have a chance to share it as well.

I have never tried papaya but my step mother swears by it. I’ll have to pass this along for her to try. I know she would enjoy it.

Becca Wilson

This looks like it would be so delicious. I have never heard of anything like this before.

While I love all fruits and veggies, papaya is the one fruit I just can’t enjoy. It has a very strong flavor. Though my kids and husband LOVE it.

Dalene Ekirapa

How I love fruit cockails…I love them whipped with vanilla ceam too. Anyway, the bionico looks so yummy and it might convince me to take it even though I don’t love papaya.

Hannah Marie
