Cuban Batido

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Bonnie G #2

Found this in one of those little grocery store magazines and it looks so yummy I want to save it here to try when those warm, lazy summer days arrive. The magazine states "A batido is a popular Latin American drink made with water, milk, fruit and ice. It is similar in testure to a smoothie and literally means "beaten" in Portuguese" Sound good to me. Update: After seeing Loof's wonderful picture I finally got around to making this myself and so glad I did. Love that tropical flavor.

What a flavourful, refreshing drink. I used vanilla soy milk in place of the milk and didn't add the sugar. The pineapple flavour shines through. I can't wait for summer weather to enjoy this on the patio! Made for I Recmmend Tag-Feb'10.
