Cucumber Papaya/ Pawpaw Slushie

Hey guys! Did you know that when you mix equal parts of cucumber and papaya/ pawpaw, you get a cantaloupe-like taste? The beauty of combining tastes and flavors never ceases to amaze me! I first discovered this way back in 2014 when I was making this papaya slushie. I, however, did not have time to develop this recipe until recently. And now I can finally share it with you. As most of my recipes, I am sharing a basic one which you can tweak and remix however you want. If you don’t fancy frozen drinks,  you can skip the freezing part and just blend the fruits into juice.

What you will Need:

1 C. Cucumber, Cubed

1 C.Papaya/Pawpaw, Cubed

Sweetener (sugar/honey)

1 Tsp. Lemon juice

Observations

  1. Use a fully ripe papaya.
  2. If you are making this for a large group, simply double the recipe
  3. I didn’t include any measurements on the sweetener because our tastes and preferences vary.
  4. If you are using a blender that requires liquid, add about 1/4 -1/2 cup of cold water

Method
Freeze the cubed fruits for about an hour.After an hour, place all ingredients in a blender and blend till smooth.Serve cold!

Let me know in the comments below how you would remix this frozen drink.
