  • 1 medium papaya
  • 1 cup low-fat plain yogurt (8.6 oz)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup flaxseeds, sunflower kernels and almond meal mixture (LSA)
  • 2 3/4 Tbsp honey (2 fl. oz)


Peel and de-seed papaya. Cut into chunks. Divide chunks evenly between 4 bowls.

Stir cinnamon through yogurt until well combined. Dollop yogurt on papaya and drizzle with honey. Serve sprinkled with the LSA seed/nut mixture 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).
