Clarendon is the parish where I grew up and this is one of my favourite recipes. You can use it in so many ways. You can drink it like a smoothie or serve it as a sauce – it’s great with the Caramel-Lime Chicken and other brown-down dishes.


  • 35 g ( oz) root ginger, roughly chopped
  • avocado pears, flesh only
  • 1 ripe mango, flesh only
  • 6 tbsp condensed milk
  • ¼ tsp ground cloves
  • ½ whole nutmeg, freshly grated
  • juice of ½ lime
  • 4 tbsp coconut cream
  • 2 tbsp rum
  • 2 tbsp roughly chopped cashew nuts


  • Put all the ingredients, except the nuts, into a blender and whizz until completely smooth. Chill the mixture in the fridge, covered, until needed.
  • Sprinkle the cashew nuts on top and, if using as a drink, serve over ice.
