Okay, So most people in the country won’t be able to make this but, my Florida neighbors can grasp this new recipe if they go to the frozen section of Winn Dixie and look for Goya’s frozen fruit section. I finally found Mamey, heard about it, but never saw it until a week ago. It cost $1.99 and was next to the Passion Fruit and Mango packages. It looks like a giant tan colored peach, and had the consistency of bread fruit, heavy, and deep orange flesh.

A lot of recipes seemed to imply that it wasn’t sweet, but this batch was delightful.

Shake Recipe

Milk Whole, or 2% or Soy Milk: 1 cup

Water: 1/2 cup plus few ice cubes

Banana: 1 frozen or 1 fresh sliced in large rounds

Peaches: 1/2 cup frozen or fresh or canned if other’s aren’t available

Mamey: I used 1/2 the package which was about 1 cup of fruit

Put all together in blender, this served 3 adults and 1 child sized cup

The result was a creamy, frothy, sweet but more refreshing and definitely filling.

Anyone else that’s been lucky enough to play around with this fruit please comment below and share your ideas!
