In a small bowl, dissolve gelatin in 1/4 cup of milk for 5 minutes. In a small pot, bring remaining milk to a boil; add dissolved gelatin to boiling milk, stirring. Turn off heat, stir in cream cheese until melted. Pour mixture into a mixing bowl. Whisk in honey, orange juice, and vanilla. Pour 1/4 cup into each papaya half. Refrigerate until set, about 2 hours. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerator overnight. Top with orange slices or seasonal fruit. Makes 4 servings.
Tip: Before filling, make sure papaya halves sit level, slicing the bottom to create a flat surface if necessary.
