Just the other day, an image on Pinterest which lead to an article, caught my eye. It was all about the cherimoya fruit. (original article here)
I was intrigued, and wanted to try it immediately (forgetting if I had eaten them in the past) and immediately began to think of what to use it in.
The info-graphic/image posted with the article (below) gives a nice bit of info about the benefits of cherimoya. I ended up finding them at a local grocery- from California, not South America, which was nice as it didn’t have to travel as far.
After letting it sit for a week or so, we sliced it open.
It’s filled, in random fashion, with these big dark seeds, heavier in some areas than others. I spooned out the soft, mango-like flesh and removed the seeds and peel. Below is what I was left with.
To me the taste was very mild, definitely tropical, and pretty delicious.
I decided to turn this into a smoothie- which ended up coming out perfectly tropical, creamy, and full of all natural goodness.
I threw the following ingredients into a blender: (click to find ingredients)
After mixing, I topped with a few chia seeds and more coconut.
Drinking this feels a bit like laying on a beach somewhere, under a palm tree. That may be an exaggeration, but nonetheless- this is a must try if you like the flavors of the tropics.
