What more than water can refresh and hydrate you on a hot sunny afternoon? And look like a cocktail to drink at a BBQ in the early evening?
I was feeling thirsty and found myself dreaming about fruits I eat in the south of France: apricots, white peaches, watermelon… They are so sweet and refreshing.
But well… I live in London, so I went to my local supermarket hoping to find something that would make a fresh and tasty alternative to my French fruit dream. And I bought a papaya.
I’m sure many of you have had papayas before but I didn’t and I had to look online how to prepare a papaya. And for those of you who, like me, didn’t know, it’s easy.
- I peeled the skin off and sliced the papaya in half
- I removed the seeds with a spoon
- Then sliced it
- And I squeezed the juice of half a lemon
I tried it without the lemon but I think the lemon gives it a nice sharper flavour.
Trying new foods is now part of my goals and this one is a winner! I ate it in no time! Now to enjoy a sunny day of revision in the garden with a big jug of water with lemon and orange slices :)
