Tamarillo & Fruit Ice Creams are a heavenly marriage of succulent tropical fruit with creamy ice cream. Whether you choose tamarillo, passion fruit, mango, coconut or Andean blackberries to flavor your ice cream, you will be delighted with the results. If you are not familiar with tamarillo (or tree tomato), be sure to try it in this recipe. As a native fruit, it makes a truly authentic Bolivian dessert. And its sweet-tart flavor is especially refreshing. You can find a wide variety of frozen fruit pulps, including tamarillo, at Latin American grocery stores.

  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • Zest of 1 lime (optional)
