Papaya Water (Agua de Papaya)

In Mexico, people often drink aguas, which are combinations of water with other fruit juices. They are different from juices in the United States because water is the main ingredient, with just a light flavoring from the fruits. They are slightly sweetened with sugar, and usually have some lime juice for added flavor. This is Sophia's grandmother's recipe.

1 cup ripe papaya, diced
1 liter of cold water
2 tablespoons of sugar
Juice of one lime

Blend the papaya, water, sugar, and lime juice in a blender.

Strain into a nice jar and stir.

Serve fresh for some vitamin C.

Se sirve fresca.

Gosh, that's another lovely summer drink! I've found some simply wonderful summer drinks here. I can't wait to make them in June!

I really love the papaya juice. Add to it a bit of sugar and also the leaf extract and it has got medicinal values and in most cases replenishes the red and the white blood cells of the human body. outlook help now Regards!
