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

Ingredients

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

Directions

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

    Very nice drink. The drinks stall probably use condensed milk which is a bit unhealthier. I like your healthy version.

      I think sometimes the drinks stall tend to add too much water, hence they need to thicken/sweeten with condensed milk, hehe

    Papaya is my son’s favorite fruit or the only fruit that he will eat it willingly. We love to put a little bit of lime juice. Milkshake version looks yummy! Will try this soon :)

    It’s a very healthy drink! This is good for those who don’t like to eat the fruit. You can mask the papaya smell by throwing in some zest of lime or lemon.

    I always have this constipation problem. Eating papaya is one of my remedies. Now I have another healthy version in my list. :) Thank you for sharing.

    That’s what I do to my over-riped papayas too but I don’t add any sweetener as the over-riped papaya is already sweet on its own.

    I’ve heard that papaya milk shake is good for boobs development, so that’s also one of the reason why I’m making this for my girls, and all the papaya soups and desserts :P

    I think I’ve actually only eaten papaya in those awful fruit salads that come in the plastic cups. This, on the other hand, looks delicious and fresh. Seems like I need to grab a ripe papaya from the store pronto to give this a try.
