Cherimoya + Pom Sundae

I want to present you our late Sunday night snack – cherimoya (Vietnamese: mãng cầu, Chinese: 番荔枝) + pomegranate sundae (W said it tasted like ice cream), the sweet and super healthy kind. In less than 3 minutes, a drooling dessert presented beautifully in front of us.

    This looks amazing! Did you make the ice cream yourself? I’ve only had the frozen kind.

  2. Looks refreshing! Love the photos.

    I am sure it tastes as good as it looks and the red berries with the white make the photos standout!!

      Thanks, Scott! Yes, the beautiful red pomegranate do a great job. It also balances out the super sweet cherimoya flavor to give it a bit of tanginess.

    That actually looks pretty good. I’ve never seen one before, but I’ll have to keep my eyes peeled. Pomegranates are supposed to be really good for you. Too bad it takes 45 minutes to eat one!

    • Irene says:

      There’s a great way to peel it without getting messy and shorter time too. Fill a big bowl or pot with water. Quarter the pomegranate. Peel each quarter in the pot of water. The seed will sink and the white stuff will float. Promise no juice will get out, no messiness, and you will be done in less than 15 minutes. After it’s done, you can enjoy the entire thing in one seating and no need to spend the $ on super expensive peeled one in store 🙂

    Absolutely love this set of photos. You sure you don’t want to take up a part time job on food art?

    Irene, these sundaes look absolutely amazing! Is the cherimoya also called a ‘custard apple’? I’ve only eaten a custard apple once but it looks similar. Absolutely beautiful take on a healthy fruit salad ‘sundae’ 🙂

      Hi Laura!

      I think cherimoya and custard apple are from the same family (as well as soursop). Their looks could easily be differentiate. The skin of custard apple has layers whereas cherimoya is smooth and custard apple contains more seed. Though they taste similar; sweet and creamy. I like both! I grew up eating them in Vietnam and missed them so.

    I love Cherimoyas. They remind me of the smell of Japanese erasers that I used to want to eat. Where did you get the cherimoyas from? Ranch 99?

    Irene, this is absolutely elegant and gorgeous! And delicious!

  11. As always beautiful pictures, your photos are always so strong. I still haven’t had a macaron, but I know where to find nice ice cream ^^

  12. I would leave a more insightful comment but I have to run to the kitchen – you made me hungry!

    I am so enjoying your blog! I’ve learned of a new fruit today and now I can’t wait to taste it. It looks delicious, especially with the gorgeous pomegranate seeds on top!

  15. Great shots of the Pom Sundae. I like how you were able to wash out the background and yet still get a lot of detail and good illumination in the foreground subject!
