Papaya Popsicles


I've asked this question before, "What do you do with overripe papayas?"  I've made papaya milkshake with them and now I've converted them into popsicles, inspiration came from my watermelon popsicles ;-)
 
I was trying to snap a picture of the popsicles but DD3 just couldn't wait any longer.
 
Quick and easy, yet very healthy treat for the family!
 
And if you are plain lazy like me, just freeze the whole cut papaya into the freezer ;-)
 
Papaya Popsicles
Ingredients
1/2 large papaya/paw paw chucks
1 lime juice (I find it quite mild, can use up to 2 limes if you want)

Method
  1. Cut the papaya in chunks with skin and seeds removed.
  2. In a blender, combine the papaya chunks and lime juice. Blend the mixture till the mixture turns into liquid.
  3. Pour the mixture into popsicles mould and freeze for at least 8 hours or overnight.
  4. Run the molds under warm water for 30 seconds to release the pops. Enjoy!

It's a great way to prevent wastage. Nowadays I freeze unfinished fruit and blended them into a drink or use them in baking.

I don't know for what reason, my kids aren't great fan of papaya. Perhaps I must try this method.
