¼ of a papaya or 1 peach, chopped into cubes

How'd it Taste?

Im looking forward to trying this recipe. It sounds mouth watering.
Haven't tried making this yet, sounds yummy. However, I don't think the photo is of this recipe. The photo appears to have some kind of oatmeal or granola - definitely not peanuts.
Liz, thanks for your reply. In the introduction, we mention the versatility and adaptability of this recipe, including using oatmeal for a healthy breakfast. We hope you'll enjoy whichever way you make it!
I love it. The papaya has high level of vitamin c that absorbs the iron tablet I am taking daily. The mango flavour is sweet and juicy; coupled with the crunchy peanuts. Good stuff.
