Adventures in Fruit: Mamey, Rhymes with “Hooray!”

This is one of my favorites. If I hadn’t moved to Miami I would never have never gotten to try this amazing fruit. Did I mention it’s one of my favorites?

It’s flesh is a similar texture to sweet potato but creamier. It’s flavor is like creamy honeyed banana mixed with pear. It’s awesome in flan, milkshakes or with a spoon. I ate this one with a spoon. Another favorite application is to put the flesh into the blender with almond milk and make it into popsicles. Talk about a nutritious refreshing post-work-out snack!

You’ll be able to recognize this fruit by it’s gritty brown skin and its about the size of a Nerf football. They’re ripe when they start to get wrinkly. Cut away the area around the seed and discard the skin. I hope you find one!

This is Christie, signing off.
