Jackfruit is a wonderful tasting tropical fruit that grows here in Hawaii. Jackfruit provides us with many health benefits. I notice that people always want to know the specific benefits that each food provides. And although I like to seek out this information too, it’s not why I choose to eat what I eat. Simply put, what I choose to eat isn’t based on how much vitamin C or omega 3 is in a food. My personal guidelines for choosing healthy food is primarily whole foods that are ripe, raw and organic – but also because they taste good and nourish my body. Most importantly, I use my intuitive sense and eat foods that are naturally delicious.
This low-fat, raw vegan dessert is very easy to make. If you have an abundance of jackfruit, as we often have here in Hawaii, then I encourage you to try this simple, and aesthetically pleasing recipe.
Raw Vanilla Jackfruit Custard Recipe
This jackfruit recipe works best with the variety that seems very stringy with fibre and is kind of difficult to chew and swallow. That’s why I blend it! Simply remove the big seeds from the jackfruit and place the jackfruit pods in a high-powered blender, add a dash of vanilla and blend until smooth.
Use a nice looking glass or serving dish to really impress your guests with a visually appealing presentation.
Add a layer of the jackfruit custard on the bottom and alternate layers with your fruit of choice. I used bananas, but other fruit would combine well with the smooth flavor of the vanilla jackfruit custard.
And voila! Another beautiful gift provided by the miraculous abundance of Mother Earth. Bless this miracle of food before us. Hope you love this raw food dessert as much as I do.
