The Star fruit isn’t nearly as popular in the US as it is in other parts of the world but is changing slowly as more people in search of a healthy diet discover its unique taste. Star fruit’s taste runs from pleasingly tart to just slightly sweet. It has been described as being a complex flavor that has elements of pineapple, plums and lemons. That complex flavor makes this three ingredient star fruit smoothie much more flavorful and satisfying than it might otherwise be.
Nutritionally, Star fruits offer antioxidants, vitamin C, and potassium. But, best of all, is that really cool star shape which, I think, makes this one of the most fun fruits ever.
This is a very simple and quick smoothie to make with just three ingredients. In your favorite blender mix:
2 Star Fruit (chopped)
1 cup filtered water
Ice to taste (I used 8 cubes)
Blend and serve!
