Ingredients

  • 1 medium papaya
  • 1/2 cup low-fat plain yogurt
  • 8 - 8 1/2 fl. oz. iced water (up to 250 ml)
  • 1 dash of rosewater
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1 tsp honey (if needed)

Directions:

Peel and de-seed papaya. Cut into chunks.

Place papaya, yogurt, water, rosewater, and mint in a blender or food processor. Blend until well combined and frothy.

Taste to determine if honey is required for extra sweetening. Add if needed and re-blend. Pour into glasses and serve.

Variations:

Papaw (or pawpaw) can replace papaya (papaw has numerous other common names, often very local, such as prairie banana, Indiana/Hoosier banana, Kentucky banana, Michigan banana, and Ozark banana - not to be confused with the traditional banana).

Tips:

Note: This recipe's ingredients have been adjusted from the Australian measures to the US measures.
