Papaya Cream

Papaya Cream

A papaya purée and vanilla ice-cream.

A true Brazilian classic, at its best when freshly prepared. A heartful thank you to our dear friend Bernardete, from São Paulo, for this recipe.

Preparation 10 min

Ingredients

1/4 papaya, red, ripe   380 g
2 scoops vanilla ice cream   125 mL
2 tsp crème de cassis (black currant liqueur)   10 mL

Before you start

For best results, choose only ripe papaya (yellow skinned and yielding to gentle pressure).

A blender or food processor will be very useful for this recipe.

Method

  1. Cut the papaya in half lengthwise and remove the black seeds. Peel and discard the skin which is not edible. Coarsely cut the pulp into pieces (about 1,5 cm) and place them in a blender. Add the ice-cream and pulse until very smooth.
  2. Portion out the mixture into individual cups, sprinkle each with the crème de cassis and serve immediately.

Remarks

Because of the presence of the "papain" (enzyme) in the papaya, this cream does not keep well: prepare and eat it right away.
