Jackfruit Lassi

Jack of all…! Whoever came up with this phrase had definitely not been introduced to jackfruit. Many brush it aside for its supposed high amount of cholesterol and strong taste. Well! The taste does get a bit of getting used to but you might try harder if you find out that it is actually a superfood, meaning not only it is eaten in various forms (ripe, raw and even the roots and seeds) but it is exploding with nutritional goodness:

  1. 80% water content and high fibre make it a great summer and detox (and even hangover ;)) food
  2. high in vitamin C, making it a great antioxidant
  3. highly recommended for cardiovascular issues

And most importantly, it doesn’t travel thousands of kilometres to reach your plate(like its expensive cousins chia and acai) so it is pocket friendly and reduces carbon footprints. And don’t we all want to leave a cleaner and safer planet for our children?

Jackfruit Lassi

Ingredients

  • Jackfruit pulp, peeled and pitted- 1 cup

  • Cardamom powder-1/4 teaspoon

Instructions

  1. Chop the jackfruit pulp into medium sized cubes and blend it for a few seconds just enough to not make a paste
  2. Whisk the yogurt with sugar (or honey if using) with a wire whisk

  4. Garnish with chopped nuts, add ice cubes and serve chilled
