Peruvian Cremolada

Cremolada

Peruvian Frozen Fruit "Drink"

A Cremolada is something between an ice cream and a flavorful fruit drink; comparable to slush, but made with lots of fresh fruit pulp, water and sugar. Often served in a large plastic cup it's eaten with a spoon and sipped.

As Cremoladas - the short form of crema helada - frozen creme - are quenching thirst perfectly while being refreshingly cold, they are very popular on hot summer days not only in Lima.

Cremoladas come in numerous flavors and colors. Using the enormous variety of fresh Peruvian fruits there is no need for flavor enhancers or colorants.

And while in Peru cremoladas made of indigenous exotic fruits as lucuma, camu camu, guanaba, aguaymanto, chirimoya, carambola or aguaje are very popular, you can as well use fruits like pineapple, kiwi, strawberry, mango, melon, ... to your taste and availabilty where you are.
