Jackfruit and Banana Smoothie

Posted Jul 08 2013 12:56am

I’m in California at the present moment, hanging out with friends and family, and going to Disneyland! It’s the season for jackfruit and I love eating this fruit fresh (rather than canned). It looks similar to durian, but not with that funky smell or custard-like texture. It’s firm, and many people have likened the taste as a cross between a pineapple and banana.

My mom, aunt, cousin and I peeled and segmented the jackfruit one day (our jackfruit was about $25, and that was a small one) with plastic gloves because handling the skin can be quite sticky. It’ll leave a thick resin on your hands that won’t wash off for days. You can either use plastic gloves or dip your hands in canola oil to keep the resin off your hands! But once you get to the fruit segments, you’re in for a treat! We had about 3 large tupperware containers from one small jackfruit. Although I had an uncountable number of segments, I made a jackfruit and banana shake the next day. It was delicious!
