A star fruit looks very much like a star when you cut them (as shown in the photo), and that is most likely where the western name comes from. In Indonesia, we call this fruit belimbing, which has nothing to do with stars at all. They are great when juiced, often time just by itself, which is the most common form encountered in restaurants. I tend to combine multiple fruits when making a juice, so I am showing you a version of star fruit juice paired with apples and oranges.♥
- 1 Fuji apple, peeled and cored
- 2 star fruits, peeled and seeded
- 3 Pontianak/Medan oranges, juiced (about 200 ml)
- 2 tablespoon honey
- Put everything in a blender and process until smooth. Strain into serving glasses to get a clear juice and serve immediately.
