Summer Smoothie Recipe: Otai Smoothie
Summer Smoothie Recipe: ‘Otai Smoothie
‘Otai is a refreshing drink that is a blend of watermelon, coconut, and pineapple, which originated in western Polynesia. We call this frozen version our Watermelon Pineapple Coconut Cooler. This ‘otai inspired recipe captures all the flavors of the traditional drink, but is smooth enough to enjoy with a straw on a warm summer evening.
2 cups seedless watermelon (with juice)
1 cup crushed pineapple (with juice)
1/2 cup coconut milk
Sweetener (stevia or agave, or sugar)
Combine all ingredients except for sweetener in a blender and mix at the lowest speed. Continue slowly mixing until the ingredients are smooth, but not entirely liquified.
Add sweetener to taste.
Serve over ice.
