I love making homemade ice cream, and this flavor really piqued my interest! I followed the instructions exactly, even though I was tempted to add the mashed papaya from the beginning. The flavor is great - it reminds me of a papaya milk smoothie - on of my favorites here! But, the ice cream didn't freeze up completely and was still a bit too loose after freezing for three hours. Next time, I'll probably use a little less papaya. Made for team Gourmet Goddesses, ZWT9.
