Tropical Fruit and Nut Smoothie - Beat The Heat!

The month of June heralds two very important changes in this part of the globe. The monsoons and the begining of a new academic year. The Met department predicts that monsoon will hit us today. Lets see how accurate they are, till then we continue to beat the heat expectantly.
I've adapted this smoothie from Sanjeev Kapoor's recipes. A great combination of tropical fruits and nuts. Cool and healthy!

  1. WOW! I must make this too! All my favorite fruits are all in here.

  2. COOL! I need one of this too. I think the globe temperature is raising rapidly. I'm sweating wet almost everyday. Hope you're having a wonderful day!

  3. My roommate and I are on a smoothie kick lately. I'm going to need to show her this!

  4. A terrific smoothie! I love the addition of pistachios!

  5. Real cool, just what I want right now!

  6. I can almost taste this. I've never seen jackfruit in any of my regional/ethnic markets. I read I can substitute papaya so I may have to do that.

  7. this looks great shirley! we've been having rain rain and more rain here and are waiting for our warm weather to begin. I'll keep this in my file for a (hopefully soon)sunny day.

  8. This would be perfect for this hot summer day. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
