This is one of my family´s favorite drinks for the summer, so good that we included the recipe in our book The Everything Peruvian Cookbook. Big, plump, and juicy strawberries are frozen at their peak of ripeness and sweetness, then they are ready to be transformed into one of the most refreshing frappés in just a few minutes. This can be done with other flavors too. If you store frozen fruit in the freezer, you will have frappés in the blink of an eye any time you feel like having one.
Instead of strawberries you may use cherimoya, soursop, melon, watermelon, papaya, mango, raspberries, grapes, plums, pineapple, lucuma, or camu camu, to give you just a few examples. Use them alone or combined to make a delicious fruit juice blend. If there are no frozen fruits at home, add ice cubes and process. Using milk instead of water is another change we love. Strawberries and milk make a delicious frappé. Frozen bananas and milk? Yes, please. Papaya and milk? Yummy!
