Mamey Milkshake - Batido de Mamey

This past week we ordered a box of mixed tropical fruits which included Guanábana, Pineapple, Green Papaya, Cacao, and Mamey Sapote from Tropical Fruit Box. The fruit arrived smelling absolutely divine, we had to wait a little while for the Mamey to ripen but it was totally with it! 
Sapota or 'Zapote' is the Spanish take on the traditional Nahuatl word to describe soft sweet fruit - 'Tzapotl'. Mamey sapote also called Zapote Colorado, is related to sapodilla, sapota, chikoo or nispero, it is a fruiting evergreen tree native to Central America. This is one of my Mom's favorite milkshakes (batidos); it has a deliciously rich almost sweet potato like flavor. 
Here's my recipe:
