Monday Munchies: Tropical Papaya Boats

Using a large piece of fruit as a bowl instead of a real bowl has its benefits.

Fruit is naturally biodegradable, seasonal in the summer and tastes like candy. Try making these papaya bowls this when a normal bowl just won’t do.

Ingredients

1 ripe papaya or cantaloupe

1 cup banana ice cream or flavored dairy-free yogurt

1 medium kiwi

1/2 cup cherries

1/4 cup blueberries

2-3 Tbsp slivered almonds

1 Tbsp chia seeds

1/2 Tbsp hemp seeds

Granola

Directions

  1. To make banana ice cream (instead of using dairy-free yogurt), add 2, previously sliced and frozen bananas to a blender or food processor and blend on low until a creamy ice cream consistency is reached. Scrape down sides as needed and add a splash of almond milk if it has trouble blending.
  2. To assemble papaya or cantaloupe boats, simply fill the hollow centers with desired amounts of banana ice cream or coconut yogurt, fruit, nuts, and seeds.
  3. Enjoy immediately.

Tips

For best results, enjoy a bowl of our brand of Spinach™ before making this bowl.
