This lactose-free papaya bowl recipe combines the simple with the scrumptious, allowing the tasty tropical fruit to reach its full delicious potential. Fresh and sweet like a mix between a melon and a mango, you need to try a papaya bowl with tangy lactose-free Greek yogurt, crispy granola, and juicy blueberries. Papaya bowls have been popular in tropical destinations for some time, but rest assured: they are easily enjoyed anytime, anywhere.


  • Heat coconut oil in a large pan and add oats, seeds, and almonds. Roast for 10 minutes until golden.
  • Add cinnamon and maple syrup and stir everything together. Roast for five minutes until crispy. Let the granola cool completely before storing it in an airtight container.
  • To serve, slice papayas in half and scoop out the seeds with a spoon. Fill each of the papaya halves with Greek yogurt, and then top it off with roasted granola and fresh blueberries.

To make an easy-to-make breakfast dish even easier, we suggest cooking a large batch of that crunchy granola. Doing this on a Sunday, for example, saves you the small amount of time it takes for the granola to cool off during busy weekdays. If merely kept in an airtight container, the delicious topping will keep its crispiness for weeks, making sure it is ready to sprinkle on your beautiful lactose-free papaya bowls any time of the day, any time of the week.
