I have never been a sapota/sapodilla (known as chikoo in hindi/urdu) fan. Perhaps it was it’s unappetising brown looks or something else that never really appealed to me. However, when I tasted chikoo smoothie at a friend’s place I loved the taste and texture. I had found a way in which I could enjoy this high fibre and anti oxidant rich fruit.
Here in Canada it’s hard to find fresh chikoos but frozen slices are easily available at “desi” (Indo-Pak) grocery stores. That’s actually better for me since frozen fruits result in a a thicker smoothie and also eliminate the need for ice, plus there’s the convenience factor too – no peeling, deseeding or chopping. Studies suggest that frozen fruits are just as nutritious as the fresh ones since they are typically flash frozen at the peak of freshness, which maximizes nutrients.
Sapota/Sapodilla (Chikoo) Smoothie recipe
Ingredients: (To make one glass)
Frozen sapota (chikoo) slices – 1/2 glass
Cold milk – 1/2 glass
Honey/sugar – 1 tsp or according to taste (Chikoos are naturally very sweet so you don’t need much honey)
Dash of cinnamon powder or vanilla extract (optional)
Method: Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Serve immediately.
