Butter fruit contains more proteins and carbohydrates. It has fiber, energy niacin, calcium, vitamin C, magnesium and potassium also. It contains healthy fat. So it is very good for weak people.

Butter fruit has light yellow colored very smooth pulp inside. We can remove it from a spoon. But don’t keep it open in the air because pulp will turn to brown colour. So after cutting the fruit we have to use it immediately.

To get maximum benefit from the fruit, it is better to eat the whole fruit. We can eat the fruit with sugar also. Blend the pulp finely and add sugar to it and keep it in the refrigerator. When it becomes cold, we can eat it as ice cream.  Grind the butter fruit pulp, milk and little water in the mixer to prepare butter fruit milk shake.
