After my morning juice, I didn’t eat anything for a while, then I made a mango coconut water smoothie with mangoes that weren’t very ripe and the taste wasn’t as good as the ones I made yesterday.
I went to the store and bought the items below. My goal was to just get the jackfruit but I saw the tamarind, I’ve never had that either.
I had to feed my papaya obsession and the mangoes are nice and ripe. I have one coconut left and I want to make a smoothie in the morning.
First the jackfruit. I’ve heard that it tastes like bubblegum. I did get that flavor. It also had a kind of savory finish. I have to admit I liked the first few bites, but the more I ate, the less I liked it. I bought it pre sliced and I it was close to the experation date so it may have been over ripe. Next time I will get the fruit and let it ripen before I try it again. I’m not giving up on jackfruit.
Now the tamarind. It has a sweet, tart and smoky flavor like roasted coffee beans. It’s very sticky. It’s natures candy and I could easily go through a box in one sitting!
I finished the day with watermelon. One of my favorite fruits.
I’m going through papaya withdrawal. I bought 4 papayas and they all are not ripe yet! I have to visit the Asian store and see if they have some in the ripe fruit section.
