One of the funnest (yes, funnest) things about becoming a crazy fruit eater has been discovering new-to-me fruits to gobble up. My friend Sylvia (hi, Sylverado!) recently brought me this mysterious treat from Whole Foods:
It’s called a Buddha’s hand…and it tastes like eating orange peels. After I came to terms with the fact that I was just not adventurous enough to choke down more than one bite, I googled the thing. It turns out, it’s perfect for zesting! So zest I did:
orange or vanilla stevia or dates with a splash of oj and/or vanilla
Place frozen bananas and stevia or dates in food processor and process until perfectly creamy. Zest in buddha’s hand to taste.
