~I told you that I would post a recipe for "Fun Food Friday" and here it is...on Tuesday. =) Sis. Farly taught me how to make this. Here in Colombia this yummy refreshing cool treat called "Salpicón" is very popular. I know summer is about over there...but there'll still be some warm days into Sep., so I wanted to share this recipe with you. Here they have special packs of a flavored powder to add to their fruit to make the "salpicón"...but I think that if I were making this in the USA I would try Tropical Punch Kool Aid. This recipe uses a lot of yummy fresh fruit so is very healthy too!~
1 big very ripe Papaya (or 2 Hawaiian Papayas) (The Papaya should not be hard...almost squishy!)
1 large Pineapple (or 2 smaller ones) (A pineapple is normally ready to use if when you tug at one of it's green leaves...it comes loose.)
3 ripe mangos (almost squishy...or very soft.)
4 cups of fresh orange juice (or make from frozen concentrate)
2 packs of Tropical Punch Kool Aid or something similar (maybe Tang?) DUMP IN DRY!!
8 cups of water
~Dice all the fruit small and let set in the orange juice for about 10 mins. or so.
~Then add the 2 packs of Kool Aid DRY and the 8 cups of water.
~If you plan on serving it right away, add 1 tray of ice cubes and mix well.
~If you plan on serving it later, place it in the refrigerator. It's best COLD!
~Lasts for 3 days in the refrigerator!
For those of you who have the "frozen fruit" recipe, this is similar in taste, but is more runny.
It's a very fun, cool refreshing treat. It makes about 1 and 1/2 gallons of juice/fruit.
And as always...ENJOY!!
