What an absolute treat to make delicious desserts from 100% whole foods and less than 3 ingredients! The simpler our meals, the less effort it is for the body to digest it. If you want to improve your digestion and improve your energy levels, then it’s well worth it to consider combining less foods in each sitting.
Jackfruit is a wonderful tasting tropical fruit that grows here in Hawaii. Jackfruit provides us with many health benefits. Although many people want to know the specific benefits that foods provide, that’s not why I choose to eat the food that I do. My criterion for choosing food is primarily whole foods that are ripe, raw and organic. Most importantly, I use my intuitive sense and eat foods that are naturally delicious.
This low-fat, raw vegan dessert is very easy to make. If you have an abundance of jackfruit, as we often have here in Hawaii, then I encourage you to try this simple, and aesthetically pleasing recipe.
Raw Vanilla Jackfruit Custard Recipe
Simply remove the big seeds from the jackfruit and place the jackfruit pods in a high-powered blender, add a dash of vanilla and blend until smooth.
Use a nice looking glass or serving dish to really impress your guests with a visually appealing presentation.
Add a layer of the jackfruit custard on the bottom and alternate layers with your fruit of choice. I used bananas, but other fruit would combine well with the smooth flavor of the vanilla jackfruit custard.
And voila! Another beautiful gift provided by the miraculous abundance of Mother Earth. Bless this miracle of food before us. Hope you love this raw food dessert as much as I do.
