Baby Maya’s “Tropical Dream” Papaya, Mango, Banana, and Cottage Cheese Blend


1 large ripe papaya

1 large ripe mango

1 large ripe banana

1 cup cottage cheese


Wash the papaya, cut in half lengthwise, and scoop out the seeds. Peel the skin and cut the flesh into 1-inch pieces.

Wash, peel, and core the mango. Cut the flesh into 1-inch pieces.

If the payaya and mango are very ripe and soft, then you can use them raw; otherwise, steam them for 7 minutes, or until soft.

Transfer the papaya, mango and banana to a food processor. Puree, adding water as needed to obtain the desired consistency.

Fold the cottage cheese into the fruit mixture and serve.
