Feijoas are a fruit with a soft, dark green skin and a sweet, slightly granular flesh. The taste is a mix of apple and pineapple and they have various health benefits including improving concentration, fighting sickness, decreasing the risk of heart disease, and helping your digestive system.
Today was my lucky day. A friend gave me a huge pile of them, so I immediately whipped up this feijoa ice cream. It’s a delicious dessert that’s creamy and bursting with feijoa flavour.
Feijoas have a slightly granular texture to them which was noticeable in the ice cream. If you’re the type of ice cream eater that doesn’t like “bits” in their ice cream, then strain the mixture after blending to reduce the graininess.
