My Mom reminded me of this yesterday when I sent her pictures of the beautiful papaya I found at that Farmer’s Market. I’ll add the pic of the papaya I got at the end of this post. This is a lovely thick, icy, fruity, sweet, refreshing drink. In Aden it is sold in the markets on hot summer days. After a long day of fasting in Ramadan you’re body will welcome this with open arms. Just remember to make dua for me.
For two servings, you will need :
2 cups of ripe papaya
1 cup of whole creamy milk
2 scoops of plain vanilla ice cream
4 tablespoons of Vimto
Blend the papaya unit it is smooth, you can add a little water or preferably ice cubes to this while you are blending it. But make sure it is smooth. Now you are ready to assemble. Take a glass pour 1 tablespoon of Vimto and swirl it around, then spoon half a cup of papaya and pour 1/4 cup of milk , then spoon the another half cup of papaya and a 1/4 cup of milk. Then add 1 more tablespoon of Vimto on top. Take a straw and swirl the mixture around gently. Add the scoop of ice cream and serve immediately. Enjoy.
