A thought of making real fruit ice cream was on my mind from quite sometime. Lots of different fruits were consumed without turning into an ice cream. So, when we bought Papaya during grocery shopping last Friday, I thought why not. The ice cream turned out to be delightfully tasty with a splash of honey over it. Here is the recipe,
Ingredients: 1/4th Papaya, Ginger, Lime juice, Cane Sugar, Honey
- Cut papaya into square chunks after removing the skin and seeds.
- Add 1-2 tbsp of sugar (depending on the sweetness of papaya) and 1 small piece of crushed ginger to half cup water and bring to a boil. Keep aside to cool.
- Add the ginger sugar water to Papaya chunks and grind everything in a blender.
- Add lime juice and mix.
- Taste the puree and add extra sugar or lime if desired. Fill the mixture in ice cream molds or cups and freeze overnight.
Just before eating, remove the ice cream from mold and drizzle some honey over it.
