lucama ice cream or other dessert recipes?

I just bought a jar of lucama puree (a fruit native to Chile and Peru) and am having difficulty finding recipes for lucama ice cream. Other lucama dessert recipes would also be welcome.

    I would follow a mango ice cream recipe and sub the puree and one of my favorite uses for lucama (and boy is that a difficult fruit to score in my parts) is this sauce. Which I enjoy on pound cake, over pancakes, on vanilla ice cream and right out of the food processor!

    1/3 cup of Lucama puree
    1/8 cup of coconut oil
    ½ cup of maple syrup
    1 teaspoon of salt
    1 scrapped vanilla bean
    Place everything in the food processor and process until well blended.
