Lucuma Ice Cream

(Based on a Rival recipe)

Makes 2 quarts

1 cup whole milk
3/4 cups sugar
Dash of salt
2 cups half and half
1 teaspoon Mexican vanilla
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup lúcuma purée

Scald milk in a heavy saucepan until it bubbles. Remove from heat. Stir in sugar and salt until dissolved. Stir in half and half, cream and vanilla. Whisk in lúcuma purée until fully incorporated. Cover and chill for 30 minutes. Freeze as directed. (Kate’s note: It takes about 30 minutes in my freezer.)

    1. Hi Jane — Yes, it went into my trusty Rival ice cream maker. And the lucuma came through powerfully — all caramel and cashews. Folks are still talking about it!

  1. Thanks for the tip, Antonio. Looks like your source is only in Florida, where I was also lucky enough to live (in Miami!) at one point.
