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.
- 1 1⁄2 cups pineapple, fresh cubed
- 1 cup ice
- 3⁄4 cup milk
- 1⁄2 cup orange juice
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon lime juice, freshly squeezed
- 2 slices pineapple (optional)
- Combine pineapple, ice, milk, orange juice, sugar and lime juice in blender container; puree.
- Pour mixture into 2 tall glasses.
- Garnish with pineapple slices.
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.
This is a very good drink, fruity and delicious. It was easy to prepare and just sweet enough. Thanks for sharing!
I would give this more then 5 stars if I could! I tried tagging it for the Best of 2009 Tag Game but was too slow. Anyway, I made it as a treat after dinner for my pineapple loving son and myself...it was so wonderful. I cut the sugar in half as my pineapple was quite sweet. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for posting this very enjoyable recipe Bonnie G
