  • Puree papayas, lime juice, and honey in a food processor. Transfer to a medium bowl. Stir in sugar syrup.

  • Freeze in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions. Transfer to an airtight container; freeze at least 2 1/2 hours (up to 1 week). Serve garnished with lime slices.

Cook's Notes

Use red-fleshed papayas, such as Sunrise Solo or Maradol. Ask your grocer which ones will have flesh with a rosy hue since a papaya's skin and shape may not be a good indication of its interior color.
