Sara drinking a special coconut shake
Some of the most delicious drinks in Thailand are the many
different fresh fruit shakes. They come in many different
varieties, such as pineapple, watermelon, papaya, banana,
coconut and mango or a combination of fruit.
The shakes are based on either water, milk or yogurt. The
yogurt based drink is a bit more filling but extremely tasty.
Most of the family preferred the fruit shakes than fizzy drinks
such as coke.. and the fruit shakes are a much healthier and
thirst quenching option.
No two fruit shakes tasted the same – there must be
many different ways of making them.
One recipe for a pineapple shake was lots of fresh pineapple,
a little concentrated pineapple juice, a little boiled cooled
water with sugar and crushed ice. This was put in a blender
and served ice cold. At home in Denmark this would cost around
30 Danish Kroner (£3), compared to Samui where it cost
around 5 Danish kroner (50p).
