Frutabomba Milkshake

1 Feb

Until I was in high school, the I knew the fruit you know as papaya only by its Cuban name – Frutabomba.  


 My dad taught me how to make frutabomba milkshakes, a true Cuban drink delicacy.  It’s smooth, creamy and the perfect accompaniment to a Cuban sandwich (made the vegetarian way, of course) or even a TuNo Salad Sandwich.   I had it this morning for breakfast.



1/4 medium-sized frutabomba (papaya), peeled and seeded
1 cup milk or soy-milk
1 1/2 tbs brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla powder
pinch of salt
3-4 ice cubes
  1. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Enjoy immediately.

Do not omit the salt… it’s the secret ingredient that makes the milkshake taste awesome.  You could substitute the milk for yogurt or kefir, but the taste will not be the same.

    with salt and sugar? it would be a potion to induce vomit LoL
    I have drank such milkshake all my life long without salt

    KFC – Es solo una pizquita de sal… no lo critiques antes de probarlo. La version cubana siempre tiene una pizquita de sal para balancear el dulce.
