La Receta del Dia: Papaya Nieve edit

Pa_1_1 A "nieve" is a delicious Mexican sorbet sold throughout the country in carts. It makes sense to me: nieve means "snow", and to have a refreshing tasty snow in the middle of the hot days is a fantastic idea! don't you think? Most of the times it is homemade, but word is out and it is sold commercially all over the world. The most beautiful part is that you can take advantage of the fruits in season, the bright colors and unique flavors they bring. Just take a look at my recipe, it is so easy to prepare! you've got to give it a try smile Come on, I know you want some homemade nieve!


  • 3 cups fresh, ripe and sweet papaya, cubed
  • 2/3 cup light brown sugar or light corn syrup
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime (or mandarin orange) juice
  • a pinch of cinnamon (optional)
  • water


  1. Puree papaya in the blender with enough water to make 24 oz.
  2. Combine papaya puree with the other ingredients and transfer to the ice cream maker. Then, follow the directions of the ice cream maker to freeze and finish this nieve.
  3. For better taste store the nieve 3-4 days in the freezer.
