This was a great way to get my kids to eat (drink) the papaya I buy for myself but can never finish on my own. My daughter's not a huge lime fan, so I halved the amount of lime juice called for, but it was still good that way. I squeezed some extra lime into my own glass, nice and tart flavour, good stuff.
