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 many 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, guayaba, aguaymanto, chirimoya, tuna or aguaje are very popular, you can as well use fruits like pineapple, kiwi, strawberry, mango, melon, ... to your taste and availability where you are.

 

LimaEasy's Recipe for Cremolada

Ingredients:

  • 500 g (1 pound) ripe fruits to your taste
  • 750 ml (3 cups) water
  • 100 g (1 cup) sugar - depending on the fruits, you can reduce or have to increase the amount
 

Preparation:

  1. Prepare the fruits (depending on the fruit peel and/or remove pit/seeds) until you only have the flesh.
  2. Place the fruits, the sugar and water into a food processor and blend until well combined.
  3. Set a quarter of the liquid aside and put into the fridge.
  4. Fill the rest into an ice cube tray and freeze for at least 3 hours.
  5. Remove the fruit juice cubes from the tray and place into a food processor.
  6. Add as much liquid from the one you set aside as necessary to blend to a creamy, not liquid and still nearly frozen Cremolada.
  7. Serve immediately and enjoy!
