  • 5.6 ounces Papaya
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Ginger + Garlic *see Notes
  • Juice of 1 Lemon
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar Cane Molasses or Honey
  • Pinch Salt
  • Pinch Black Pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons Water


  • Half or quarter your Papaya depending of it's size, discard the seeds and fine whitish skin and cut off the Papaya peel. Cut the fruit into small chunks. We need about 160 gram of the fruit, use the rest of the Papaya for something else.
