Raspberries and Papaya

Time flies! Only few days ago I was walking dawn the Copacabana beach. Believe it or not, I already missed my short vacation. But no matter where I am one thing stays unchanged - my love for the exotic produce that makes each vacation in the tropics so unforgettable.

Here are two recipes for you to try. If you recently recovered from a very cold winter this might be exactly what you need.

~ Papaya Boat with Raspberries ~

  • ripe papaya
  • 2 cups fresh raspberries
  • juice of 1 lime

  • Wash and cut the papaya lengthwise in two halves. 
  • Scoop the seeds out, but do not discard them. You can use them to make delicious salad dressing later on. 
  • Pour half of the juice all over the papaya "boats."
  • Wash raspberries and arrange them inside the papaya. Pour the remaining lime juice over raspberries. Done! All you need now is a good company to enjoy this tropical treat even more.

~ Papaya Raspberry Smoothie ~

  • 1 ripe papaya, peeled, seeded and chopped
  • 1 cup raspberries, washed
  • 1 ripe banana, peeled and chopped
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 cup coconut water
  • few ice cubes

  • Place all the ingredients in a blender and process until smooth.
  • Pour into tall glasses and enjoy in good company!

I have chosen ripe raspberries for my recipes. You can use mixed berries if you prefer. Make sure, though, that you are buying organic produce.
