Papaya, I have never been a big fan of this fruit in the past, the smell was too strong for me and for all other unknown reasons, I had avoided it. But now, I have developed a liking for this fruit, I think, might be the hybrid varieties available don't have the very strong smell and also, knowing the health benefits of this fruit, you want to set a good example for your kids. At home, we like it ripe but at the same time firm, not overripe and mushy and we just have it as such. The other day I tried out this simple milkshake with it, it turned out very good. I didn't add any flavors to it, just milk, papaya and honey, very healthy and tasty. Only, one warning, make this milkshake fresh and just have it right away, it might taste a little bitter with time..
Need To Have
- Papaya Pieces - 1 cup
- Cold Milk - 1 cup
- Chilled Water - 1/2 cup
- Honey Or Sugar - 1 teaspoon or as needed
Blend the papaya pieces with half the milk, till it turns into a smooth mixture. Then add the remaining, milk, honey or sugar and pulse it lightly. That's it, serve it immediately.
If needed, you can add some cardamom for flavor.
If you refrigerate, it not only tends to turn bitter, but also thickens up.
If you use fat free milk, then you can avoid the water, just make the milkshake as thick or thin as you prefer.
