I was wanting a lychee but couldn’t find any tins of lychees in my pantry. Instead, there was a tin of jack fruit, and I decided to conjure up a smoothie with that instead. The results were quite pleasant.
If you haven’t had jack fruit smoothie before, I guess the taste could be described as a cross between mango and papaya. Jack fruit smoothie is not as strong or sweet in flavour as those, but does have a refreshing taste and beautiful fragrance.
- 2 scoops of ice (up to the level of about 3 cups in the blender jug)
- 4 pieces of tinned jack fruit
- 60ml Absolute vanilla yoghurt
- 60 ml of syrup from the tin
- 45 ml passionfruit syrup
- Juice of half a lemon
Put all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
