Naseberry milk punch, a delightful treat

I love the tropical fruits I grew up eating in Jamaica. They include bananas, pineapple, mango, naseberry (sapodilla), June plum, star fruit, tangerine, oranges, grapefruit, makka fat, stinking toe, otaheite apple, golden apple, guinep, various plums, guava and apple banana.

When each fruit is in season its is usually available in such abundance that after eating your fill, other uses are explored. As a result, juices, cakes, tarts, jellies, jams and preserves are made. Recently, I was given several dozen naseberries by a friend and, after eating my fill, I decided to make a naseberry milk punch. Below is my recipe:


 3 cups of naseberry fruit pulp
 1 can evaporated milk
 2 cups whole milk
 1 cup vanilla ice cream
 1/2 cup  granulated sugar
 2 teaspoons vanilla
 1teaspoon nutmeg

Put ingredients into a blender and purée.
Taste for sugar.
Serve with ice.
