Papaya Milk

Papaya Milk Recipe

Papaya Milk (木瓜牛奶) is a popular drink in Asian countries such as Singapore, Hong Kong and Taiwan. This is my simple home-version. I thought of doing this because I have leftover papaya from making papaya, snow fungus and almonds dessert. The papaya was a little over-ripe and soft so I thought it will be nicer in a drink than eating it on its own. It turns out really nice and a healthy, refreshing drink. Some people also believe that this drink is beneficial to expectant mothers because it is nutritious.  For other known properties of this drink, check out the comments ;)

Papaya Milk Recipe

If you have a whole papaya, slice away the papaya skin (using a vegetable peeler or knife). Cut the papaya in half lengthwise, and use a spoon to scrap out all the seeds.

Serves: 1 glass

Prep Time: 10 mins


  • 200g ripe & sweet papaya flesh cut into small chunks
  • 200ml fresh milk
  • 1 tsp honey to taste


Blend everything together in a blender until you can get a smooth consistency.

    just curious… is there a specific way to blend this? I’ve heard low into medium is the best way, curious to other peoples comments :)

    I made this with soy milk, and it turns out that papaya ans pawpaw contain an enzyme that coagulates soymilk! It was definitely surprising when I retrieved the drink I had put in earlier to find it was now a mousse XD it was still delicious though. great recipe.

    I’ve tried making this before, just on my own without a recipe. It was really good except it always had a top layer of foamy papya pulp on the top which made it a bit unappetizing. Do you have any results like that or tips?
