Tropical Fruit Paradise- An Observation!

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!
