Although the products listed on this website are topical creams for external use only, the papaya is such a versatile and healthy fruit that we couldn't resist adding a few simple recipes.

PawPaw Smoothie

  • 1 paw paw
  • 1/2 can coconut cream

Paw Paw (or Papaya) Pepper

The papaya seed, as well as being rich in useful enzymes, can be used as a substitute for pepper in many recipes.

Ingredients

  • seeds from 2 papayas

Method

Place the seeds in warm water and remove any adhering pulp. Let it stand for about 10 minutes. The pulp will rise to the surface where it can be skimmed off.

Cover and let the seeds soak for about 7 or 8 hours. Rinse the seeds in a strainer and spread on a stainless steel baking pan. Bake at 150 degrees overnight or until completely dry.

To use, simply grind in a pepper mill.
