I’m feeling so grateful for the beautiful sunshine today.
So I decided to post a recipe for one of my new favourite sunny, fruity, sweet snacks:
You will need the following ingredients:
– 1/2 of a large papaya
– 1/3 of a ripe pineapple
– 2 or 3 sweet oranges
– cutting board
– kitchen knife
– blender or food processor
And here is how it’s done:
First, cut your papaya in two and take all the seeds out. From what I have heard the seeds are extremely healthy, apparently some people buy papayas only for their seeds. So, you can use the seeds (e.g. dehydrate them and use them as pepper corns) or throw them (on the compost). They have a bitter taste.
Next, take the skin off of the papaya and roughly chop 2/3 to put into your blender or food processor. Take the other 1/3 and chop into small or large cubes. Do the same with your third of a pineapple, also using the ratio 2:1, putting 2 parts in the blender or food processor and chopping up the other part. Then peel the oranges and put them in your blending/processing device.
Combine chopped pieces of fruit with the sauce in a bowl.
Feel free to play with the ratio and the amount of fruit that you want to use. I personally don’t like putting more pineapple into the mixture because it makes my tongue feel weird 🙂 This also depends on the ripeness of the fruit.
Chris Kendall, who I discovered fruit soups from, has a whole bunch of different recipes as well.
