One of the highlights of summer is the tropical fruits in season, which are abundant during this time at their sweetest and cheap.
Below are just of them:
Sweet honey melon, can be eaten fresh or turn into shake/smoothie, see recipe here or just shredded, add sugar, water and ice – a simple drink concoction you can find at street stalls selling street foods.
This guyabano was given by a neighbor, it can be eaten as is or turn into fresh juice which was my favorite drink when I was in college and still is.
And of course, this famous fruit – the sweetest mango in the world is found here in the Philippines, the best.. see my mango shake recipe here.
We can add also avocado which is a favorite for shakes and ice cream, we love to have them sweetened with condensed milk or sugar with milk then blend into smoothie, check avocado shake recipe here.
Banana is available all year-round and also pineapple.
