Some years ago this dessert was on fashion in Brazil, most of the nice restaurants started to offer it. Now you can still eat it in the "Churrascarias", the Brazilian-style steak houses that you also find in other countries. Of course, with Brazilian papaya the dish is even better...
1 ripe papaya
1 scoop vanilla ice cream
1 tbs Creme de Cassis (can be substituted for a non-alcoholic syrup)
Peel papaya and remove seeds. Cut in small pieces. Blend with the ice-cream until smooth. Pour into dessert bowls. Add Creme de Cassis over the cream and serve.
