Papaya Boats is a healthy and delicious option for breakfast or snacks which looks irresistible as well. Eat the toppings and then scoop the papaya for a filling breakfast. Here is how to make it.
I always believe that the key to eating healthy is to make everything you eat look absolutely irresistible.
Today I’m making a super simple tropical treat called Papaya boats; it’s made using ripe papayas and some other fruits and yogurt to make it look absolutely divine.
It’s also one that tastes just as good as it looks.
This summer, it’s time to throw away those bowls and to substitute them with these super good- looking fruit bowls.
This papaya boat is made entirely from fruit and the only kitchen utensil you would require is a nice big spoon to devour it.
Papaya is a delicious, sweet fruit packed with the essential Vitamin C, A and folate.
It’s also high in minerals like Potassium, Magnesium, and Calcium.
Added nutrients like dietary fiber and carbohydrates make it great to boost digestive health, help lose weight, improve skin health and also improve immunity.
This recipe is really simple and instead of plain papaya cut into cubes, make this decadent dessert or snack the next time around.
What’s great about this papaya boat recipe is that you can make it with your kiddos as this recipe doesn’t require any cooking on the fire.
This is one recipe you can play with and add fruits and toppings that are readily available in your kitchen apart from those mentioned in the recipe.
This papaya boat reminds me of a tropical holiday and given that papaya is readily available in India almost all year round, this is definitely one recipe you’ve got to try.
To make this delicious papaya boat recipe, the first papaya is cut in half lengthwise and the seeds are removed.
Now, into the hollowed-out center, whisked vanilla yogurt is added and it’s topped with pears and blueberries.
You can add the fruits of your choice and according to availability.
Finally, it’s sprinkled with granola and garnished with fresh mint and edible flowers.
This dish is to be served immediately, based on availability, you could also add fresh or frozen raspberries and coconut shavings to your papaya boat.
Overall, this papaya boat recipe is a great healthy summer treat to try; it’s a great way to celebrate the tropical climate of the land.
You could make it for a cocktail party or just as a snack for the kiddos, with all the beautiful colors and the freshness of the fruit, they are sure to love it.
