Homemade Papaya | Pawpaw Recipe

’Adiba’ the Ewe name for Papaya / PawPaw is used in making this skin nourishing, gut friendly homemade Ice Cream recipe.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF PAPAYA / PAWPAW

*Papayas are rich in Vitamins A, C and E and do contain high levels of antioxidants.
The high level of antioxidants prevents the oxidation of cholesterol hence reduces the risks of heart diseases.

Papaya is also rich in folic acid , helps boost ones immune system, high in fibre and reduces inflammation of one’s digestive system.

Papaya also contains Copper, Magnesium and Potassium. With all the above benefits Papaya/PawPaw qualifies as my super fruit.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF YOGHURT

Yogurt contains Calcium which is necessary for bones and teeth

B Vitamins which helps the heart

Yoghurt is rich in Protein which supports one’s metabolism as it keeps you fuller for longer, (particularly Greek Yogurt).

Live yoghurt contains effective probiotics which lessens the uncomfortable symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

Easy Vegan Papaya /Pawpaw Pudding

During one of my many conversations with Mum, she revealed her favourite childhood  Vegan pudding Grandpa made for the family. A pudding made from fresh Corn, Peanuts and sweetened with ripened PawPaw (Papaya). that were all harvested from the farm.

When Mums vibration of pitch heightens, I know it’s a great memory of hers and I feel more connected hearing her tales. She emphasised the pudding was a treat that GrandPa treated the family to as a thank you for their hard work at the farm.

Mum explained during her childhood Sugar was an expensive ingredient, hence they relied  on fruits and vegetables such as , Papaya, Pineapple Sweet Potatoes etc to sweeten most of their dishes.

I wanted to recreate that feeling and memory again for Mum, particularly when my Aunties from the Togolese side of my family visited (pre Corona era).

I quickly got the 3 main ingredients required for the recipe and under the tutelage of Mum recreated her childhood fond memory.

The stories and fondness associated with this pudding meant I had to share this recipe as it has become one of my favourite all natural pudding.

Inspired by this memory I created another version

INGREDIENTS
