Title: Tamarind Sapodilla Smoothie!!
Post by: gunnar429 on April 27, 2014, 04:31:50 PM
Sapodilla is too syrupy sweet for my liking, but it is productive and available when other fruits are not.  therefore, i decided to try a few things so that i could have a new appreciation for this fruit.  To me, it needed a tart component so I used tamarind.

Ingredients:

3-4 sapodillas
3 bananas
1 pack goya frozen tamarind
2-3 tbspoons sugar
3-4 oz coconut milk

Blend smooth, and enjoy!  Now my wife is bugging me to make more, when before, she wouldn't even care about sapodillas.  To me, it tasted like a green apple jolly rancher, but i may be embellishing unknowingly

Sounds like this would work well with any other acid complex fruit. How about sapodilla with tropical apricot? Or sapodilla with emblic. I know sapodilla and lime is an excellent mix as well.
