This easy, no-cook puree is an excellent source of vitamin C and fibre. Serve papaya puree by itself or mix with a range of other purees.
Cut the papaya in half, lengthways, and scoop out the seeds with a spoon.
Use a small sharp knife to cut the flesh away from the skin of each half. Discard the skin.
Cut the flesh into bite-size chunks.
Puree the papaya in a food processor or blender until smooth. You can add a little baby milk, if needed, to reach desired consistency and make a creamier puree.
Make sure the papaya is RIPE before making the puree.
For a thicker consistency you can mash instead of puree.
