Breadfruit Punch

One can find breadfruit in every backyard across Trinidad and Tobago, since 1793, which was the first time it was introduced to the Caribbean and is by far the greatest fruit and food and a lot can be made from just one breadfruit. Here is one such.


1 small half ripened breadfruit

1 1/2 cups almond milk

1 cup honey

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp grated nutmeg

3 bay leaves

2 tsp vanilla essence

Wash and cut the breadfruit into quarters and remove the heart and seeds. Remove the skin with a sharp knife.  Put the breadfruit in a pot with enough water to cover the pieces. Put the bay leaves and cinnamon into the pot.  Steam the pieces on medium fire until they are soft.  Remove pieces from the pot and blend with milk, vanilla, sugar, nutmeg and blend until smooth.  Pour mixture into a pitcher, chill for about two hours, then serve and enjoy…..
