Fantastic - matches exactly my requirements for low fructose! I used rice milk and added 1 teaspoon tahini for creaminess. No sweetener necessary, the papaya really is sweet enough. For the berries I used sour cherries, cranberries and blueberries. This definitely is a keeper - thanks for sharing! Made for POOL PARTY TAG GAME.
Sweet, creamy and smooth. Be sure you have a ripe papaya (slightly soft when squeezed) and that you cut off the bitter ends and skin). I love that Rita gives nutrition information in the description!
Yummy. I changed by adding 1 c. fat-free plain yogurt, and did not use the honey since the mixed berries are sweet enough. Add more milk until you get your desired consistency. Great breakfast drink!
