Try this before u throw out overripe papaya and mash melon

I hate to throw away over ripe fruit and it seems to be happening once to often in my fridge. On Friday I discovered two overripe papayas  as well as musk melon in my fridge and I didn't have the heart to throw them nor the guts to eat them. So I did a bit of googling and found out these amazing recipes for papaya halwa as well as mash melon milkshake. So adding some and deleting some ingredients, I found these recipes that worked for me...
