Papaya Drink

Papaya Drink. This drink reminds me of my dad and those hot summer days when he would stand at the kitchen counter, having just come back from work, and would be cutting the papaya and putting all his ingredients in the blender. Agua de Papaya was one of his favorite drinks, just after limeade.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups papaya chopped
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 4 cups cold water
  • 2 cups ice cubes

Instructions

  • Place the chopped papaya, sugar, and 2 cups of water in your blender. Process until you have a very smooth drink.
  • Pour this mix into a pitcher. Add ice cubes and the remaining 2 cups of water. Stir and taste for sweetness. Most of the time, papayas tend to be very sweet, so you don’t need to add more sugar to your drink, but that will be a personal taste.
  • Serve and enjoy!

Notes

Optional: lime juice of one large lime. My dad loved adding lime juice to this drink.
