Knife and chopping board To cut the papaya
1medium papaya that is very ripe (or 1-4 Cups of papaya, depending on how concentrated you like the flavour to be)Cut into small cubes. You can freeze extra to make papaya milk in future- the recipes works well with frozen fruit.
1CupmilkI like full-cream. Feel free to use UHT milk. See the recipe post for dairy-free substitutes if vegan or allergic to dairy.
Honey, xantham gum, sugar or condensed milkOptional- you will need it if your papaya isn't very ripe
Cup the papaya into small cubes
Add to the blender with the milk.
Whizz it till it's at the desired frothiness- for a thicker, fuller flavoured drink, add more papaya.
Taste- if too bland, add a bit of honey, sugar or condensed milk.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
Papaya milk isn't for everyone- it's like coriander in that some people hate the smell.Papaya milk doesn't keep well, even if chilled, as it will turn bitter quickly. Always drink it right after blending.
