A Papaya Gazpacho Recipe That Is Simple To Make

This is a beautiful, refreshing start to any meal. With just a few simple ingredients and a minimum preparation, papaya gazpacho can be whipped up in just minutes. Papaya was known as the fruit of angels; it is not only delicious but offers many health benefits. It contains the enzyme papain which helps digest proteins; it’s high in vitamins C and A which both offer anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant effects.

Papaya also contains lycopene which can aid in preventing vision loss. This tropical fruit is a rich orange-pink color inside. It’s buttery soft and sweet. Choose papaya that is slightly soft, which has a reddish-orange skin. You can either peel it, then slice in half, discard seeds, and chop – or slice in half length-wise and scoop seeds and flesh.
