LimaEasy's Recipe for Cremolada

Ingredients for  Cremolada

  • 500g mellow fruits to your taste
  • 750ml water
  • 120g white sugar (depending on the fruits you can reduce or have to increase the amount)

Preparation of Cremolada

Prepare the fruits (depending on the fruit peel and / or remove pit) until you only have the pulp. Place the fruit pulp, the sugar and water into a liquidizer and blend until well combined. Set a quarter of the liquid aside and put into the fridge. The rest fill into an ice cube tray and freeze for at least 3 hours.

Remove the fruit juice cubes from the tray and place into a liquidizer. Add as much liquid from the one you set aside as necessary to blend to a creamy, not liquid and still nearly frozen cremolada. Serve immediately and enjoy.

Es un poco complicado, tienes que prepararlo, ponerlo en la heladera, y al día siguiente lo sacas el suficiente tiempo para que descongele pero no pierda su sabor.
