Papaya and Lemonade Frappe

This Papaya and Lemonade Frappe drink perfectly combines fresh, ripe Papaya, homemade Lemonade, and fresh ginger. It’s sweet and sour with complex, layered flavors. It’s refreshingly delicious!

Papaya is eaten fresh or used in cooking applications such as salads, stews, chutneys, and curries. In Haitian cuisine, Papaya is a delicious ingredient eaten as part of a fruit salad or regular salad, raw, in legumes (stews), juice, or smoothies.

What are Papaya and its benefits?

Papaya is also known as papaws (plural) or pawpaw and grows in certain countries with tropical climates. The Papaya is incredibly healthy. This tropical fruit contains vitamins A, C, E, and B6, folate, potassium, and magnesium. It is also an excellent source of dietary fiber. This fruit also has anti-inflammatory properties, which make it great for people with arthritis and osteoporosis.

The color of papayas can range from yellow to orange or pinkish red when ripe. The flesh is juicy and sweet and contains many small black seeds in its interior. When unripe, papayas are hard and green in color with minimal flavor and are perfect for salads. Ripe papayas are slightly soft but firm enough to hold their shape when cut open.

What’s in the recipe for Papaya and Lemonade Frappe

  • Ripe Papaya: if you buy a green papaya, wait a few days until it ripens.
  • Cold Lemonade: buy a couple of lemons and make Lemonade.
  • Peeled fresh ginger: using fresh instead of powdered ginger is better.
  • Ice is optional, but I suggest adding a few ice cubes to make the drink colder and create an almost slushy texture.

Instructions on how to make Papaya and Lemonade Frappe:

  1. Peel the Papaya and remove the seeds.
  2. Cut the Papaya into small pieces, then blend with fresh ginger until smooth.
  3. Add ice cubes to your blender and add 1 cup of Lemonade.
  4. Blend until combined, then pour into glasses and serve immediately!
