Yogurt Papaya Boats With Homemade Crunchy Granola
I hope you all had a great 4th of July weekend! The 4th of July weekend always makes it officially feel like summer. We had a great weekend celebrating with family and friends. My recap will be up sometime this week, along with a recipe for apple fritter cake! On Saturday morning, I had a few girlfriends over for a trail walk, followed by a DIY papaya boat board. When I used to take my trips to Hawaii, I had both girls visit me! We fell in love with fresh Hawaiian papaya (never the same on the mainland!) It grew on the trees at the house we were staying at, which made it even better! After playing tennis in the mornings, I started making papaya boats with homemade granola.
Emily messaged me on Instagram after seeing one of my stories and said she wanted to make these again, so I told her I’d do it for us on Saturday! It was just as good as I remembered, and I need to start making these more!
There’s truly nothing better than homemade granola! You can find my recipe for my go-to granola here. This time, I added dried blueberries and roasted almonds to the recipe. It’s delicious!
To make the papaya boards, all you need is your choice of yogurt (I bought different brands of individually packaged yogurt to choose from), blueberries, raspberries, bananas, mango, dragon fruit (any fruit you’d like!), chia seeds, scooped out papaya halves, and homemade crunchy granola.
Mix the chia seeds to thicken if you use a dairy-free yogurt.
This recipe can easily be gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan! Just use a plant-based yogurt, and make sure to use certified gluten-free oats with granola.

- Slice the papayas in half and scoop out the seeds.

Papaya is incredibly healthy!
I hope this post gives you a fun breakfast idea! ♥️
Questions for you!
- Do you like papaya?
- What is a food that only tastes good in your state!
- What is your favorite brand of yogurt?
I found your blog while you were in Hawaii because I live on The Big Island. We do have the best papaya growing in our backyard and this is a great idea for my breakfasts. Do you think you’ll visit again?
I would LOVE to visit again one day with my family!
