What is Cuban-style ice cream? For Azucar Ice Cream Company founder Suzy Batlle, it’s the creamy, tropical treat her grandmother churned using local passion fruit, avocado, and more. Batlle sources all that goes into her 70-plus flavors from farmers—even the guava that stars in Azucar’s Abuela Maria, a blend of vanilla and cream cheese with pieces of cookie and tangy bits of fruit. There’s a lot of ice cream in Miami, but none delivers a sense of place like Azucar. Where else in America could you score a scoop of “Burn in Hell, Fidel”? (That’s chocolate ice cream spiked with cayenne, for the record.)
