DIRECTIONS

  • Add watermelon flesh to a large bowl. Crush it, using a potato masher or by pulsing with a blender (regular or immersion). You want to leave it with some texture and body. In Tonga, this used to be done by grating the watermelon with something like a fork.
  • When you get the texture to where you like it, stir in the coconut milk and fresh squeezed lime juice.
  • Otai is naturally sweet, tropical, and full of body. The little bursts of watermelon are the most fun, but watch out – they might clog your straw!
