Place enough ice in a blender to create your desired amount of shave ice balls. Blend the ice cubes until they form light and airy shavings. With your hands, form into as many shave ice balls as you would like. Place them in the freezer until you are ready to use them.
In a blender, add the papaya, lime zest and juice. Blend until smooth and then strain the mixture through a fine mesh sieve into a bowl. Stir in the simple syrup.
To assemble, place your shave ice in your desired vessel, drizzle with the syrup and serve.
Take equal parts of granulated sugar and water (such as 1 cup sugar & 1 cup water) and place them in a sauce pot. Bring just to a boil, remove from the heat and let cool.
