Watermelon and papaya juice

I’m starting my year off healthy. I made some watermelon and papaya juice (pawpaw as it is known in Naija) late last night and I love it! Now why do I buy juice at the grocery store again?! Hmm…! Looking forward to putting my blender to good use this year.  I basically chopped, blended and bottled one pawpaw (aka papaya) and 1/2 a small watermelon along with the juice of 1 lemon in each batch. Fruit is truly organic in Nigeria, so it spoils pretty quickly. This is a great way to preserve it for a few days and drink more of it. Enjoy!

Jus de papaye et pastèque

Je débute mon année sainement. J’ai bu du jus de pastèque et du jus de papaye tard hier soir…j’adore ça! Mais dis donc, pourquoi est-ce que je continue à acheter du jus de fruit au supermarché?! Hum…! Cette année, j’ai hâte d’utiliser mon mixeur comme il se doit. J’ai simplement haché, mixé et mis en bouteille une papaye et la moitié d’une petite pastèque avec le jus d’un citron. Les fruits sont vraiment bio au Nigéria, alors ils se gaspillent très vite. Voilà une bonne façcon de les conserver pendant quelques jours et d’en consommer plus. Allez, savourez!

    Yeah, we are lucky in Naija with fresh fruits and vegetables.

  3. Just discovered your lovely site. Your melon & papaya juice look very rich & healthy. I keep coming across information that says that one should not eat watermelon with other foods. I wonder if that goes for the juice as well?
