20+ Fall & Cold Weather Recipes

Fall is here with some days skipping right to Winter. Cooler weather in our house means getting out the Instant Pot, stockpot, and cast iron. It's soup, stew, & comfort food season! Here's a list of some of my favorite recipes to get warmed up with:

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:
