Recipe: Cherimoya Ice Cream
- 4-6 ripe cherimoya fruit
- 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.
- 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.
- Scoop into bowls and enjoy!
- Serves 4-6, depending on appetites.

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!
