Papaya is one of those super foods with all sorts of amazing nutrients in it including antioxidants, phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals and special digestive enzymes. When Papaya is in season I will cut it in half to make a ‘boat’, discard the seeds and eat the papaya straight out of the peel. As previously blogged, t’s the perfect Island Breakfast served with coconut milk. I was serving Papaya for brunch the other day though and wanted an easier way to present it, than a “Papaya boat”. Super simple. Cut in half, discard seeds, peel, and slice. Serve with lime wedges!
Here’s my latest smoothie crave. Papaya, avocado, coconut milk, and lime! It was rich, creamy and delicious. The only thing that wasn’t great was the color. As you might know from painting, that’s what you get when you mix red (papaya) with green (avocado)! But who cares right?
Happy Thursday! 🙂
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup (or more) water
1 tsp (or more) honey (optional)
Using a blender or inversion blender mix ingredients adding more water as needed
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! 🙂
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
