Ciku Juice & Winners of Think Out Of The Shell Volume II Giveaway


Ciku Juice / Chikoo Juice

Ciku oh ciku.. I love thee.. I remember there used to be a ciku tree in my family house that bear abundance of ciku fruits. We moved later on and over the years, the price of ciku kept increasing. The fruit sellers said there’s not many ciku farm, hence ciku supply is very limited.

Ciku (chikoo or Sapodilla) is a very sweet fruit, and I usually take it as a fruit. Until I had a ciku juice in a Vietnamese restaurant a few years back. It was like thick ciku puree.. pure bliss. Since that time, I’ve can’t find ciku juice. That restaurant or any other vietnamese restaurants with ciku juice on their menu does not serve it anymore. Seems ciku supply is low.

Ciku / Chikoo

I tried to make it at home and the recipes I found are mostly indian chiku milkshake. You can blend with milk or my version of just water & lots of ciku..

  5. It’s been ages since I last had ciku! This is a great idea making juice with them. YUM!

  6. Ah ciku, one of my favourite fruits too. Yes, i remembered when i was a kid, there was an abundance of it, my parents will buy a lot and peel them for us. Vietnam Kitchen still has ciku juice on their menu, but lately it is not so sweet anymore, i think they use just semi ripe ones and add sugar 🙁 oh, btw, i’m so happy to have won one of the cookbooks, yay! Thanks! Have sent you an email with my mailing address.

    • Ya, last time there’s abundance of ciku. will lookout for ciku juice at Vietnam Kitchen.. but it’s so easy to make my own la.. 😀 Congrats on winning the cookbook, I have receive your email.

  7. Shannon, I love ciku a lot too! Haven’t eaten it for quite some time as cannot find. Even if available at the fruit seller, the quality is not that good. I have never had it juiced before. I just eat the whole fruit. Am now recalling it’s sweet slightly creamy and gritty texture.
