Tzaneen Pawpaw Coconut Chiller

Papaya is also called the fruit of the spirits and Coconuts are called the Tree of Life. Papaya and coconut together create a smooth sweet tropical drink recipe made for an African queen.

Tzaneen Pawpaw Coconut Chiller

Papaya, papaw or pawpaw has sweet flesh with pungent undertones. The flesh is also soft when ripe with a buttery texture. 

Papayas grow in all tropical and subtropical countries throughout the world including Africa.  

Coconuts are called the Tree of Life throughout the world because every part of the coconut is used for drinks, fiber, food, fuel, utensils, musical instruments, and much more. 

Perhaps the oldest reference of coconuts is from Cosmas, a 5th century AD Egyptian traveler. He wrote about the “Indian nut” after visiting India and Sri Lanka formally known as Ceylon.

Coconuts grow in regions are as far north as Hawaii and as far south as Africa's largest island of Madagascar.

Being African in America I have grown up learning about different ethnic cultures. My father and mother are historians of African culture and history and their influence expanded my activities to several best-selling cookbooks, magazine columns, self-branded products, and a popular African culture and food blog.
