Custard Apple Smoothie
Custard apples are also known as “Sharifa/Sitaphal”. There are two varieties of custard apple, one is called sitaphal and the other variety is called ramphal. Many of us are not acquainted with ramphal. The difference between the two varieties is, the exterior of sitaphal is greenish in color and has a rough surface, whereas ramphal is yellowish with red highlight and the surface is smooth. The inside of both are more or less same with a buttery, smooth, sweet pulp having a delightful aroma. It has many health benefits like
Very healthy for skin & hair
Good for those, who need to gain some healthy weight
Reduce the risk of miscarriage during pregnancy
Prevents heart attack
Lower the risk of arthritis
Good source of Iron
But now a days we are not interested to eat such food because we feel difficult to remove the seeds and then eat. To make it more interesting I thought of making a smoothie out of it. This smoothie is creamy and very delicious to drink.
