(45 calories | 1 1 1 myWW *SmartPoints value per serving)

If you’ve never had papaya (or guava) before, you’re going to love this simple creamy frozen dessert. It mixes together in minutes—though you will want to plan ahead and make sure you have a frozen banana ready to go.

Frozen Low-Fat Papaya Dessert

This makes a simple and delicious dessert that’s perfect for anyone who loves ice cream, but not all the added sugar and fat.

Fresh papaya is high in fiber, healthy antioxidants and contains a natural enzyme called papain that helps support digestion. It has a sweet taste with orange-colored flesh.

Step 2: Add all ingredients (in the order listed) to Vitamix blender container (or other high powered blender). Secure the lid.

Step 3: Choose Variable 1 (Low) and turn the blender on. Gradually increase the speed to 10 and switch to Variable II (High). Use the tamper as necessary to press the ingredients down into the spinning blades.

Step 4: After 30-45 seconds, you’ll notice a change in the sound of the motor and will see the mixture form into 4 mounds. When this happens, turn it off. (If you continue blending, the mixture will begin melting.)

Step 5: Serve immediately.

Step 6: Add any leftovers to an airtight container and store in the freezer. Before enjoying from the freezer, set the container on the counter and allow it to soften to desired consistency. (The time for softening will vary depending on amount of frozen dessert and current room temperature.)
