Notes

The ice cream in the video is made with mamey fruit, a wonderfully velvety, luscious fruit but a bit difficult to find. If you can find them, look for ones that are not too firm but you can press slightly without feeling a gap between the skin and the flesh. Mango is another wonderful fruit that abounds in Mexico and makes a delicious ice cream for sure!
