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.

    This was actually my breakfast when I was in Indonesia. Papaya is so cheap there and healthy. I didn’t add any milk and honey, thou. Just water and blend.

    I like to eat papaya but not a fan of 木瓜牛奶 …

    I thought 木瓜牛奶 is the secret to big boobs? (sorry to be saying that in a food blog) :O
