Fresh Fruit Salad with Custard Apple Fruit

Over the weekend I went to Lee Lee Oriental Supermarket, in Chandler, AZ. This is where I purchase my young Thai coconuts from all the time. Plus, they have a wonderful variety of seaweeds, fresh veggies, and lots of exotic fruits. This visit I discovered a new fruit called the Custard Apple.

The Custard Apple fruit looks like a mini-version Durian, with a smoother looking flesh. However, I haven’t found that it is related, other than it is a tropical fruit, found in Asia, Australia, and Africa. The flavor is sweet like apples and custard (hence the name Custard Apple), and is very nutritious. The meat can be scooped from the skin and eaten, but be sure to remove the somewhat large, thick, black seeds.

Today’s recipe is a simple fruit salad topped and tossed with delicious Custard Apple fruit. Hope you like it!

Ingredients:
2 Custard Apple fruits (seeded and peeled)
1 small to medium-sized banana (peeled and sliced)
1 kiwi (peeled and chopped)
4-6 small to medium-sized strawberries (stemmed and sliced)
1/4 cup blueberries
1 T raw cacao nibs
1 T goji berries
1 T raw almonds (sliced and crushed)
1/2 T hemp seeds
sprinkle bee pollen
3-5 drops chocolate flavored SweetLeaf Liquid Stevia

Preparation:
(It’s best to use chilled fruit for this recipe. I recommend refrigerating fruit first). Combine all the fresh fruit in a bowl and toss well, making sure that the Custard Apple fruit is well incorporated, as if it were cream or yogurt. Add in remaining ingredients, and lightly toss. Serve chilled. Yummo! This is a great, nutritious, and energizing salad for any time of day!
