Start your morning with Breakfast Papaya Boats. Ah, summertime. The perfect season to forgo bowls and use fruit instead. Let’s do this! Have you ever tried a papaya? My first time was when we vacationed in Bali and it seemed to be the star of most fruit platters. The flavor was a little unique at first and I couldn’t decide if I loved it or hated it. I’m kind of a watermelon and cantaloupe kind of girl, but I must admit this juicy, tropical fruit is growing on me. 

Not only is papaya sweet, juicy and tender, it’s also super healthy! Serious bonus.

Papaya is packed with Vitamins A, C, and K, and it also boasts plenty of fiber, potassium, and folate. If the health perks still don’t win you over, try cantaloupe instead! It works beautifully in this recipe as well.

This recipe may be my simplest yet! I don’t know where the concept originates from, but it’s essentially a fruit bowl of goodness.

Simply halve your papaya or cantaloupe, scoop out the seeds, and top with whatever you can round up! These are so versatile you can easily adjust your fixings to suit your tastes.


  1. Slice papaya in half lengthwise.
  2. Spoon out seeds and scrape away just a bit create a small bowl.
  3. Fill each side equally with yogurt, fruits and granola. Enjoy!
