Postcard from Belize: Coconut Ice Cream, Manelly's, San Pedro

I should be working right now, but I'm having a horrible time focusing. I just got back from Belize, where I spent about five days with some friends. My whole attitude is completely readjusted, and work just doesn't seem important (though it is, and I do love my job).

Pretty soon I'll manage to get back on track and be all caught up, but until that time, I thought I'd sneak off for five minutes and share this photo of the house-made coconut ice cream I had at Manelly's in San Pedro on Ambergris Caye. Creamy, a bit fatty, and full of suspended flakes of real coconut, this ice cream knocked the socks off the gelato I had in Italy last month.

The following night, I went back to Manelly's and tried a cup of fresh banana ice cream. The coconut was by far the winner, but the banana had not a hint of artificial flavoring and was nearly as good.

The most interesting gelato I'd ever tasted was wasabi flavor (once available at the Caio Bella next to our CMP office on Harrison Street). It's not recommended by itself, but if you mix it with coconut, it tastes quite good.
