This is a super quick Brazilian dessert. I first had it about 10 years ago at a Brazilian churrascaria while on holiday in Miami. It is papaya blended with vanilla ice cream and served with some crème de cassis. If you want it non-alcoholic, you can use cassis syrup instead. I have been seeing a lot of papaya at my local market and this dessert popped back into my head. It’s a great treat for summer. To make it just a bit lighter; I used frozen yogurt and vanilla bean instead of vanilla ice cream.
This recipe serves 2.
3 cups of fresh papaya
2 cups of frozen yogurt
¼ cup of milk
1 vanilla bean or 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
2 shots of crème de cassis
Place the papaya, frozen yogurt, milk and vanilla in the blender and blend until smooth. Serve a shot of crème de cassis on each glass and then pour the crème de papaya over it.
