Have you tried cherimoya?

When I first heard of this fruit I knew I HAD to try it. I googled it and according to Wikipedia it has a sherbet-like texture and it tastes like a blend of banana, pineapple, papaya, peach, and strawberry. I didn’t go searching for it in local grocery stores nearby however I did think of it once in a while.

Several years later I saw it in our local grocery store so unexpectedly and I was thrilled.  I brought two home and since they were ripe I put them in the fridge.  Oh my…how tasty.  They have a custardy texture with a mix of fruity flavour and maybe even a hint of vanilla thrown in.

I’m not a fan of tropical fruit but this one was a hit.  They’re back in our grocery store and my husband has been bringing them home.  As a desert on it’s own it is fantastic but this past week I used them to make awesome smoothies that tasted like Juicy Fruit gum!

Here’s a recipe for the amazingly sweet smoothie.
