Serves: about 1 quart
Ingredients
  • 8 ripe Pineapple Guavas
  • 1 can (14-ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1½ tablespoons apple brandy
  • 2 cups cold heavy cream
Instructions
  1. Cut the guavas in half, and use a small spoon to scoop out the flesh.

  3. Add the heavy cream to another large mixing bowl, and use an electric mixer to whip it on high until stiff peaks form, about 4 minutes.
  4. Gently fold whipped cream into guava mixture. Once it's evenly blended, pour it into an airtight container and freeze for at least 6 hours, and ideally overnight.

      Hi Tina, some say the flavor is reminiscent of pineapple — an overall tropical vibe. So happy you have some ingredients ready! 🙂 Enjoy!

    Pineapple guava plants grow beautifully here in Tucson, but they never end up fruiting. However, we eat the flowers, and they are very tasty! If they are any indication of how good the fruit tastes, I want to go find some right now, and make your ice cream!
