Cherimoya Ice Cream

Recipe: Cherimoya Ice Cream

Cherimoya Ice Cream [1]Summary: Naturally sweet, creamy, custardy cherimoya makes a fantastic vegan, raw, dairy-free, gluten-free natural ice cream with no added sugar.


  • 4-6 ripe cherimoya fruit
  • Water


  1. Scoop flesh from ripe cherimoya into the bowl of a food processor, discarding the peel and large seeds. Whirl into a paste. Scrape paste onto a plastic plate and place plate in freezer until cherimoya is frozen solid, at least 4-5 hours, or overnight.
  2. When ready to make ice cream, remove cherimoya from freezer, break it up into pieces by hand, and place frozen pieces in a food processor. Whirl into a thick paste, adding a tablespoon or more of water (a bit at a time), until it resembles ice cream. Do not over mix or it will melt and get slushy.
  3. Scoop into bowls and enjoy!
  4. Serves 4-6, depending on appetites.

Quick notes

For more info, here is what I wrote earlier about cherimoya [2].


Banana-Cherimoya Ice Cream: Freeze slices of overripe banana and add frozen banana to the frozen cherimoya while you are whirling it into ice cream. This is a fantastic combination of tropical flavors!
