Lately most side street you pass in Bocas Town has a mini fruit stand selling pineapple, papaya, mango, melon,
watermelon, oranges and banana and all at a really good price! They also sell fresh veggies!
It seems you cannot buy a blender in town as a lot people have discovered the taste of these fruit drink mixed
together make a great healthy drink called a “batida” meaning “whipped”.
The shipments of fruits come from the “bread basket” in and around Chiriquí, Panama, They drivers usually
show up on Tuesday or Wednesday and there is a mad rush to get the freshest of the new bunch.
Every morning I make a great combo breakfast drink. I freeze packages of the fruits so I can mix and match
different taste. This morning was orange juice, pineapple and banana! So hey try it … you’ll like it!
It’s good and it’s good for you!
