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.

Africa is surrounded by water but is not an island, here are a few African Island facts.

Madagascar is the 4th large island in the world and is located in the Indian Ocean supporting a unique biology, about 90% of its plants and animals are found nowhere else on earth.

Composed of 155 islands, Seychelles is Africa's smallest country. By far the largest island is Mahe, home to about 90% of the population and the site of its capital city of Victoria.

Cabo Verde has a strategic location 310 miles or 500 km from the west coast of Africa near major north-south sea routes; important communications station; important sea and air refueling site.

Africa is surrounded by water but by definition Africa is not an island because Africa is a continent. Continents can not be considered islands because of their size and also by historic definition since many people who study geography define islands and continents as two different things.
