You can even customize your papaya breakfast bowls based on what you like best! We’ve included three ideas in the recipe below.
You’ll combine fresh papaya, creamy coconut yogurt, and other fruits for these perfect breakfast bowls.
How to Choose the Best Papayas for Breakfast Bowls
If you aren’t super familiar with papayas, that’s okay—you’re going to love them.
Choosing the perfect papayas for breakfast bowls is kind of like choosing avocados! You’ll know they’re ready to go when they give a little when you push on them. You can also tell by the color of the skin—ripe papayas are bright yellow with little hints of green or red.
Remember: you don’t eat papaya peel or seeds.
If you only have firm papayas on hand but want to whip up these breakfast bowls, what should you do? You can wait a few days and let them fully ripen. But a quick trick is to place the papaya in a paper bag overnight….it should come out soft and sweet!
Why You Should Make Papaya Breakfast Bowls
Papaya breakfast bowls are a delicious, fresh, and healthy option.
But papaya really is an incredible food to eat for breakfast. It’s packed with fiber, and you’ll feel full for longer. Plus, papaya is also filled with protein, which makes these breakfast bowls the perfect meal to start your day with.
A papaya is like a creamier version of a mango. WIth a slightly sweet flavor and a melt-in-your-mouth feel, papayas are the perfect base for breakfast bowls.
Then, you’ll add other fresh fruits and the creamy coconut yogurt for a well-balanced breakfast that tastes amazing!

How to Make Papaya Breakfast Bowls
It’s totally okay if you’ve never heard of fruit breakfast bowls. They’re super easy to make, and would even be a fun project to let kids help out with!
First, you’ll choose a ripe papaya. These are much easier to slice, and way tastier to eat. Slice the papaya in half lengthwise, then scoop out all of the seeds with a spoon.
Now it’s time to assemble your papaya breakfast bowls. You’ll layer in coconut yogurt (if you don’t like coconut, swap for another flavor).
Then, sprinkle on your toppings. In the recipe below, I’ve included three different variations.
One includes raspberries, blueberries, and chia seeds. The second recipe features blueberries, toasted coconut flakes, and chia seeds. The last option features chia seeds, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, toasted coconut flakes, and some fresh mint or basil.
Chia seeds are included in all of the variations because they’re so good for you. This superseed chia blend is delicious and nutritious—it includes chia, flaxseed, coconut, and hempseed. These nutrient-rich ingredients add fun texture and lots of benefits to your breakfast bowls.
But you can even tailor these papaya breakfast bowls to include what you like! Add some granola or honey for a special treat. Or try adding other fruits to your bowls.
I also recommend squeezing a little bit of fresh lime juice over the top for some brightness!
