Creamy Tropical Jackfruit Green Smoothie

Posted by on Sep 4, 2013 in Recipes | 0 comments

When I was in Thailand I tried sweet jackfruit for the first time and loved it. It’s hard to define what it tastes like, but was at once creamy and sweet.  Of course I have used green jackfruit in brine before, but never ripe jackfruit.  Luckily I had a couple of cans of jackfruit in syrup sitting in my cupboard and so when I couldn’t sleep last night and was thinking about food I decided I should try to use them in a smoothie.  I combined the jackfruit with fresh almond milk, papaya, hemp seeds and pumpkin seeds and the results were spectacular and ridiculously creamy! Even my partner, who is never too expressive when it comes to food, said it was really good!
