Pie For Parrots
It was a weekend full of pies in our household. You all know I don’t bake (well, I try) so these pies were of the frozen variety. A couple of my friends are opening a new restaurant in Cayman and one of them asked me to whip up a couple of key lime pies for the occasion. While cruising through the aisles at the grocery store for my limes, I spotted a very attractive papaya that was flirting with me an aisle over. It instantly made it into the cart. And when I see a papaya, I instantly think Cayman Parrots.
I’ve mentioned before that Clark Kent and I volunteer with Cayman Wildlife Rescue. Every few weeks, we drive out to Savannah to clean the cages, change out the toys, provide showering services (see above) and lavish with treats the six rescued Cayman Parrots that are currently in recovery. They love papayas! If they could eat it in pie, they would 🙂

You will need:
1 Papaya (make sure its sweet)
1 cup condensed milk
3 cups cool whip
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 graham cracker pie crust
- Slice you papaya open and remove the seeds and strings.
- Blend the fruit or mash it up with a fork if you’re more ambitious than I am
- In a bowl, mix papaya, whipped cream, condensed milk and lemon juice
- Pour into a ready-made graham cracker pie crust (I know, I know…but remember, I’m a terrible baker!)
- Freeze for at least 6 hours
- Serve with a dollop of whipped cream.
- Think on what a cool word ‘dollop’ is while taking a bite of this lovely, easy pie 🙂
