Pawpaw Served With Yoghurt

Just like most fruits, the sugar concentration increases steadily as the fruit continues to ripen. Well ripened pawpaw is soft and really sweet, a great combination with yoghurt. (Read more about pawwpaw here: Food Profile: Pawpaw (Papaya) )

Funke Koleosho's Pawpaw served with Yoghurt

In today's post, I have combined pawpaw with Greek style natural yoghurt (which I have sweetened with some maple syrup). This is a great and refreshing dessert recipe. Try it.

  • 1 really ripe pawpaw (papaya) 
  • Some Greek style natural plain yoghurt (you may use any other preferred yoghurt)
  • Maple syrup or honey (you may also use sugar if you cannot readily find either)

What to do:
  1. Wash the whole fruit thoroughly before peeling. 
  2. Dice the fruit and set aside. 
  3. Transfer the yoghurt into a mixing bowl and add maple syrup or honey to sweeten it. The amount you use depends on your preference for sweetness. 
  4. Then carefully serve the yoghurt into a glass and layer the diced pawpaw over it. 
  5. Serve chilled.
