jackfruit shake recipe – sharing one more summer beverage drink of a jackfruit shake made with coconut milk.
summer seasons brings along seasonal fruits like mangoes, melons, litchi and jackfruit. during every summer we prepare recipes with seasonal fruits, apart from relishing them in their natural state. last year i had shared quite a number of mango recipes and even raw jackfruit recipes.
lately, i had seen this interesting recipe on the isha foundation website here. the recipe was unique as the milkshake is made with just three main ingredients – ripe jackfruit, coconut milk, and jaggery. i tried the recipe and it was a hit at home. i did not add cashews as mentioned in the original recipe but you can add them. i did make some changes to the original recipe and what we got was a sweet, creamy, thick jackfruit milkshake.
you can use powdered jaggery or the regular block of jaggery for this recipe. since i used organic powdered jaggery, there were no impurities. if using regular block of jaggery, then use a small amount (also depends on the sweetness of jackfruit). dissolve the jaggery in hot water. cool completely, then strain it and add to the shake. if you don’t have jaggery then add sugar. but jaggery is a healthier option than sugar.
try this jackfruit shake this summer and you will have keeper recipe. step by step pics below the recipe card.

1. chop the jackfruit. remove the seeds. add the chopped jackfruit in a blender jar. the seeds can be added in stir fries or in sambars.
2. add the coconut milk and powdered jaggery. i did not added regular dairy milk as i don’t know how jackfruit reacts with milk. e.g. some fruits don’t go well with milk like citrus fruits and melons.
3. blend till smooth and then add the ice cubes and ¼ cup water.
