INGREDIENT 101: Black Sapote
Originating in South America, black sapotes are usually harvested in Florida and Hawaii. Known as the “chocolate pudding fruit,” black sapote tastes exactly like chocolate pudding. Deceptively rich and creamy, a 100-gram serving has only 130 calories and 191 mg of vitamin C, or twice that of an orange. Chocolate lovers rejoice!
Black sapote's flesh is rich and custard-like, with a sweet, nut-like mild flavor and when blended with milk, cream or ice cream, it tastes like mild chocolate - but without the caffeine or calories!
