Helado de Lucuma (lucuma ice cream)


  • 2 cans (354 ml per can) of evaporated milk
  • 8 tablespoons of lucuma powder mixed with 8 tablespoons of milk
  • 1 pouch (7 g) of unflavoured gelatine solved in 1/2 cup of water
  • 1 cup of sugar

For best results leave the evaporated milk in the fridge overnight. Pour the evaporated milk into a big bowl. Beat the milk at high speed with a hand held beater or stand mixer for about 2 minutes until stiff peaks. Add gradually the sugar, lucuma and gelatine. Keep beating until all ingredients mixed well. Pour the mix into a container with a lid and then freeze it.
