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.

I didn't strain and drank it nice and cold. Great way to get lots of fruit! Thanks! Made for I Recommend Tag.

What a tart and fruity delight, and it only took a few minutes to make. I doubled the recipe, using just 2 cups of water and put everything into my blender. It came out so smooth that I didn't even have to strain the mixture. I served it to my son and a group of his friends, and they all gave it a thumbs up! This is the first time I'd ever tried papaya, but they will be in my shopping cart from now on so I can have more of this delicious treat!

Great to have as a summer drink for the kids to get another fruit into them. Very good and definitely not bland. Quite sweet so I will probably end up diluting it slightly as my kids are not used to very sweet drinks.

Love the recipe!! I served it at a party and everyone loved it! I didn't have a strainer so I put it through some cheese cloth, which was a little difficult, but it was definitely worth it!!

I'm actually really surprised that it wasn't good. I love papayas and have made many recipes with papayas in it. I think this recipe calls for too much water because the drink is bland. My papayas were very ripe and sweet and I think the water diluted the flavor too much. I might try this again with just 1 cup of water and add more as I need to. Thanks!
