Recipe: Guava Cheesecake Ice Cream 

By: iTi Innovation

Guava’s popularity has been increasing substantially over the past few years with no end in sight.  With a tangy, fruity, and bright flavor guava is quintessential to all product lines.  Guava’s flavor profile contributes acidity and tanginess, which compliments sweet food items, such as pastries, cupcakes, and icings, and also offers a well-balanced flavor to savory products, such as marinades, dressings, and sauces. Guava imparts a pleasant aroma and color to finished products, making them all the more appetizing to your consumers.  Guava naturally contains vitamins A and C, as well as antioxidants, making it the perfect ingredient to use in formulations!  

Guava is a versatile ingredient that can be used for numerous applications. Guava has long been a staple in Latin cuisine, and is often incorporated into beverages and desserts. Guava is a great addition to jellies, jams, and marmalades, too. Its multi-faceted flavor profile blends well with other fruits including but not limited to mango, banana, and passionfruit. The options are endless for applications with this unique ingredient! 

Since ice cream season is right around the corner, the iTi Innovation Team has created a recipe for a sweet and pleasantly tart “Guava Dream Ice Cream” to showcase guava’s vivacious, spirited nature.
