A fruity milkshake is the best way to enjoy the fruits of the season. I used a farm-grown fresh papaya to level up my refreshing milkshake. Papaya has a lot of natural sweetness, but I added canned fruit cocktail to sweeten it up even more (and make it prettier to look at!). Try this simple papaya milkshake with fruit cocktail in the comfort of your home and let me know what you think.

To make this milkshake, you'll need fresh papaya, fruit cocktail, and milk.

Hello Pamela,

Same here. I really enjoy making papaya shake. Healthy alternative to powdered juices.

Hi Dredcuan, although I had eaten a milk shake, I had not taken a cocktail fruit with it. Will try later. Much thanks and happy new year 2021!
