For the Love of Mamey: 4 Recipes Using Mamey Sapote

Mamey Sapote known as Mamey for short is currently in season and I felt it was appropriate to create and share a few recipes using this unique fruit. I fell in love with Mamey a few years ago. It tastes like a baked sweet potato in taste and texture. The tree is indigenous to Central America.  It is traditionally used to make ice cream or batidos, which are cold milkshakes made with milk, ice, Mamey, vanilla, and nutmeg. 


Nutritionally it is high in soluble fiber and an excellent source of vitamin C.  Some of the other health benefits include: increased immune function, reduced risk of colon cancer and hypertension alleviation. Some consider the fruit as an aphrodisiac that induces sexual desire.  


I created three recipes using mamey, oatmeal cookie, raw pie, and a smoothie. I was able to get my Mamey Sapote from Miami Fruit. They have an amazing inventory of tropical fruit and make it accessible.  You can grab a box from Miami Fruit by clicking here. Use coupon code “Raw” to receive extra savings on your purchase.
