My family and I are on vacation this week.
And I confess that I was going to skip posting a recipe (Shut up. I know!) because I was busy preparing what I’d take and planning what we would do.
But then, I started thinking of summer…
I started thinking about how I’m going to slowly savor that giant stack of books I have been saving. (See? I can’t even stop with the food metaphors for one post, but that’s not important right now…. =D)
I started thinking sandals and sunscreen.
Long walks on the beach and amazing sunsets.
Barbecuing every night and . . .
Batidos de Mamey!
You can take the Cuban mom out of the kitchen…. 😉
Batido de Mamey
One 14 oz. pkg. Frozen Mamey Pulp (Goya makes a good one)
1 cup milk
1/2 cup vanilla ice cream
About 1 cup of ice cubes
1/4 to 1/2-cup sugar (add to taste)
1/2 tsp. Vanilla extract
1) Throw everything in a blender.
2) Puree for about a minute or two or until it’s all frothy and smooth and…
Ah, summer. =D
