Howdy Friends and TGIF!
Today I would like to introduce you to a Cuban batido (milkshake) made with mamey [ mah-may ]. Mamey is the national fruit of Cuba. It has the flavor and texture of sweet potato pudding and it is best served as a milkshake. Being that I am a Cuban gal and I love love mamey, I thought it would be neat to share a delicious recipe utilizing the fruit.
Fun Facts about Mamey:
Mameys are native to Central America. They're cultivated in Mexico, the Caribbean and in South Florida. They can be eaten raw, or made into milkshakes, smoothies, ice cream and fruit bars. Mamey is considered an aphrodisiac (ooh la la). It's also packed with vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin E and potassium. Mamey ripens in April and lasts several weeks in season (hurry, time to get 'em).
1. 3.5oz mamey, skin and seed removed
2. 8oz milk (whole or skim) *I prefer to use almond milk
3. 1tbs agave honey (as a sweetener) *optional
4. ice cubes
1. Blend all the ingredients
My Cuban Mamey Milkshake will bring you a SMILE
