  • 2 cups ripe jackfruit meat loosely packed (about 4 whole pods, 8 ounces, or 200 grams)
  • 4 Tablespoons lime juice about the juice of 1 lime
  • 2 cups unsweetened unflavored plant milk


  • Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend on high for 30 seconds or until uniformly blended. Serve or store immediately.


Be sure to use ripe jackfruit, not green. If your jackfruit is canned and packed in syrup, you may want to rinse it before blending so the drink is not overly sweet.
Make sure there are no seeds or seed fragments in the jackfruit.
You can store the smoothie in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days. The smoothie will thicken once chilled. You can add more plant milk to thin it out.
You can make a frozen version of the drink by freezing the jackfruit meat beforehand.
