Serves: 2 person(s)
Yield: 2 x approx. 1-1/2 cup servings

Preparation Time: 5 mins
Cooking Time: 0 mins


    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)


    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.


    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).
