Star Apple recipes

We’ve used our wonderful Cape Trib star apples in a few different recipes including jam and cakes but thank you to Grace Van Berkum for providing us with one of our favourite recipes yet - star apples smoothie.  When our star apples ripen they arrive in their hundreds, so this is the perfect way to use them - happy blending ;-)


1-2 star fruits (without skin and pits)
1 tbsp tahini
Handful unsweetened, shredded coconut
Raw honey to taste
pinch of ground Cinnamon
pinch of ground Cardamom
2-3 cups water or unsweetened coconut milk
1 cup ice



Blend until creamy and smooth. It will come out a beautiful shade of purple. Sprinkle with cinnamon and cardamon.
