Simple Island Breakfast

We just spent a few weeks on the beautiful island of Kauai eating papayas and avocados every day for breakfast. Papaya is very sweet and is beautifully balanced with the tartness of lime juice. Here’s my favorite way to eat and serve papaya – with lime and coconut milk! Aloha! 🙂 Blog papaya1

  • Fresh papaya (you’ll know it’s ripe when the skin starts to get yellow and the fruit is soft)
  • Fresh squeezed lime
  • Coconut milk (from a can)


  • Cut papaya in half lengthwise and scoop out and discard seeds
  • With a spoon or knife, carve some papaya chunks from the sides
  • Top with plenty of fresh squeezed lime juice and coconut milk
