Fertiliser for the gut!

We know fruit is good for our health, but some are in a whole different league - the papaya happens to be one of them. Jam-packed with health benefits, the papaya is a nutrient-dense, unique-tasting tropical super-fruit.

The easiest way to reap all the health benefits is to eat lots of papaya, but that’s not so easy. The fruit are quite delicate and can spoil quickly in hot weather. Drying fresh papaya in the 'Breeze' dehydrator means you can reap the benefits all year-round, even when they’re not in season.

Papaya is composed largely of water but when it’s dried, it becomes a nutrient-dense, chewy and candy-like snack. Once you have dried papaya in storage, you can add a tropical twist to homemade trail mix, granola and muesli or whatever you fancy.

Papaya is also a powerful digestive aid and great for the gut. We’ve created a simple, oat and coconut based, high-fibre, papaya granola. We consider it fertiliser for the gut. Team it with homemade yogurt for a satisfying and nourishing way to start the day.

Making your own granola is much better for you than boxed versions, which can be loaded with unhealthy fat and sugar. This homemade papaya granola is full of all sorts of tasty and nutritious ingredients and comes together in no time.
