Ingredients

1/4 papaya, red 380 g
2 scoops vanilla ice cream 125 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 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.

As I am allergic to dairy, I could not use Ice Cream. I tried to substitute Coconut Milk, but it didn't have the same sweetness to it and was a bit bland. The thing that works the best is Coconut Bliss Vanilla Frozen Dessert... it tastes sooo good. I missed the taste of the blackberry, but since I don't use alcohol, I found that a little bit of Blackberry jam or preserve on top of it works well too. I skipped the mint as I think it is fine without it. Also, a food processor doesn't work well with this... a blender is better for a smoother finish.
