Papaya Milk (木瓜牛奶) is a popular drink in Asian countries such as Singapore, Hong Kong and Taiwan. This is my simple home-version. I thought of doing this because I have leftover papaya from making papaya, snow fungus and almonds dessert. The papaya was a little over-ripe and soft so I thought it will be nicer in a drink than eating it on its own. It turns out really nice and a healthy, refreshing drink. Some people also believe that this drink is beneficial to expectant mothers because it is nutritious.  For other known properties of this drink, check out the comments ;)

Papaya Milk Recipe

If you have a whole papaya, slice away the papaya skin (using a vegetable peeler or knife). Cut the papaya in half lengthwise, and use a spoon to scrap out all the seeds.


  • 200g ripe & sweet papaya flesh cut into small chunks
  • 200ml fresh milk
  • 1 tsp honey to taste


Blend everything together in a blender until you can get a smooth consistency.

  1. Yum, I make this all the time when I have overripe papayas. Or ones that aren’t sweet. Love drinking this. I’ve also heard the rumors of what this milk is supposed to do…and I can say that it definitely didn’t work for me. After my mom read about it, I started drinking a few cups a day for a few months..nothing. Hehe

  2. I love dried papaya so I think that I would like such milkshake too :)

  3. I want to try this, do you think it will work if i use a hand held immersion blender?

  4. We actually add condensed milk to the mixture instead of honey–next time I will try the honey! In the U.S. we have a latin food brand GOYA and they make frozen papaya puree that also works well for this milkshake!

  5. Yeah, it’s very popular in HK. Whenever I go back to HK, I’d definitely buy this delicious cool drink when we’re in hot days. It’s very nutritious too.

  6. I’ve had this before and it is delicious. When I first heard of it I was thinking “yucks”. But surprisingly it was so tasty. I guess for anyone who doesn’t like papayas, this would be a no-no. You can do the same for honey dew melon as well, but probably omit the honey.

  7. Interesting! I have never had this before!

  8. This is so simple and also so amazing! Papaya is Just delicious. I love the creamy texture of it. Perfect!

  9. Mmm, one of my favorites!

  10. Delicious! This is so beautiful…..
