Healthy Ice Cream & Sunnyside Ups

As fruitarians we enjoyed being on Herbie’s World Tour trying new kinds of fruits and vegetables all around the globe. South America is again a whole new experience for us.

We found lucuma, aka eggfruit (top left), and pacay, widely called ice-cream bean (top right and below), very delicious. Lucuma is also popular for flavoring ice cream.

The ice-cream bean is a legume native to Central and South America. They have been depicted in ancient ceramics of the Incas and other Andean peoples.
