While surfing the net, I saw Mbele TV’s cool idea about buko juice so instead of waiting for summer, I thought of trying them out now, seeing that the weather is really summer-ish. The idea is pretty simple really, go get some coconut or buko juice and infuse it with whatever fruit/s you have on hand. Easy peasy yeah?
So anyway, last Saturday, I braved the heat and trekked into the Saturday Salcedo Market to look for my ingredients. And I found these – some blueberries, strawberries, lemon and mint.
I made three fusions from the market trip last Saturday.
- Coconut juice with mint (my favorite)
- Coconut juice with lemon and blueberries
- Coconut juice with blueberries and strawberries.
The possibilities are endless! for a more summery feel, try infusing coconut juice with pineapple chunks and segmented oranges. Or how about lychees and rambutan? Or strawberries and kiwi – now that’s eye catching!
