We've been experimenting and creating our own licuados over the past few weeks. A licuado is basically a fruit-water drink, very fresh, and you can find them everywhere- but they are just as easy to make at home!
We've been using watermelon as a base for a lot of these, which is great as it is such a watery fruit. Then you can add whatever other kinds of fruit you want (we do mango, orange, strawberries, etc.), a squeeze of limon (small limes from here). Put all of that in the blender with some ice, and whiz it up and you're ready to go. Sometimes it will be helpful to thin the mix out a bit with some juice or water. Sometimes they need a little added sugar, so add that to taste.
|Here's what you need- fruit, blender, cup. Done!|
-juice or water if needed
-limon(s) to taste
-a little sugar to taste
Blend it all up, and you have a fresh drink that's delicious and refreshing- perfect for summer.
