Papaya Pure

Papaya Pure

This is pure Thailand in a glass – whenever you buy a slice of fresh papaya from a street stall in this tropical country, it is always served with a wedge of lime.


2 papayas

1 lime, plus a wedge to serve (optional)

120 ml/4 fl oz/½ cup apple juice


Papayas are pretty easy to prepare, just peel away the skin, remove and discard the seeds, then chop the flesh into chunks and add them to the blender.

Cut the lime in half, squeeze on a citrus press and add the juice to the blender, then pour in the apple juice and blitz everything together until smooth. Give it a good stir to combine, then pour it into a glass.

If you like, you can add an extra hit of lime by serving the smoothie with a wedge for squeezing into the drink.
