Costa Rica is a blessed tropical paradise of fresh fruits. And with all my years of living here, I have to contest it is cheaper to buy fresh fruit and make your own fresh fruit juice then to buy the manufactured kind. No joke! I can never get enough of this treat and here are a few ideas of juices you can do anywhere in the world.
We know this style of drinks as smoothies, in Costa Rica they are called batidos. Enjoy!
Fruit, Fruit and more fruit:
pineapple, blackberry, mango, papaya, strawberry, cantaloupe, watermelon, guanabana, passion fruit, star fruit
water or milk
Cook It Up!
You can use one fruit or mix a dozen fruits you decide. Throw your choices into a blender with the ice, sugar and water or milk. (Many people like it with milk, you can do whichever you like, they all taste amazing). Give it a whirl and viola.
Serve it Up!
Pour it into a tall glass or simply stick a straw directly into the blender (if it’s just you) and sip away.
