Summer is approaching and making milkshakes in my house its a must.
Papaya is tropical fruit very popular in many countries, it is packed with many nutrients which are beneficial for our health. Fresh ripe Papaya can be eating raw or can be drink in shakes; unripe green Papaya is eaten in some countries as a vegetable, either cooked in soups or stews, or raw in salads. We also make a dessert with green Papaya: Dulce de lechoza (Papaya in light syrup)
I love when the Papaya fruit is really ripe and it has that deep orange color, perfect to make smoothies.
