Um, Papaya! I love this delicious antioxidant rich fruit. It is an excellent source of vitamin C and beta-carotene. I also love sorbets. They are easy to make icy treats generally make with sweetened fruit puree, or even with pureed vegetables for a savory treat.

This recipe is a delicious and healthy dessert you can enjoy it anytime. Guess what I’m having for breakfast.

Papaya Sorbet

Papaya sorbet is wonderful served as a standalone dessert or team it up with other scoops of fruity sorbet. It is nice served with slices of fresh fruit, especially with fresh papaya slice.

2 papayas
3 tablespoons lime juice, fresh squeezed
2 tablespoons agave

Wash the papayas and cut both in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds, peel the skin with a vegetable peeler and cut into small chunks.

To make in an ice cream machine: place all ingredients in a food processor and process until well combined. Pour the mixture into an ice cream machine and follow manufacturers instructions.

To make without an ice cream machine: place the small chunks for fresh papaya on a cookie sheet and place in the freezer until frozen. Place the frozen papaya chunks in a food processor, add the fresh lime juice and agave, and process until smooth and creamy. Place the papaya mixture in a freeze friendly container with lid and freeze for about 2-3 hours before serving.

Makes about 4-8 servings, depending on the size of the scoop.
