WHAT IS BLACK SAPOTE?

Black sapote is a green-skinned fruit with black, sticky pulp. It is commonly called chocolate pudding fruit. It is popular in Central America, and it is found mainly in Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Cuba and Guatemala.
The black sapote has the peculiarity of having the taste and the color of the chocolate, but with way fewer calories: 45 for 100 grams (compared to 530 calories for 100 grams of chocolate).
Another advantage? This chocolate pudding fruit is rich in vitamins A and C. In Central America, a kilo of black sapotes costs around 2 euros.
