Dragon Fruit Shake

Fruit shakes, or ‘Sinh to’, are outrageously popular in Vietnam. There are dedicated streets just for Sinh to vendors. When in Vietnam, I have a fruit shake every day. Sinh to varieties include jackfruit, avocado, mango, dragon fruit, papaya, strawberry, banana and more. Condensed milk is the key though.

Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 1 dragon fruit, peeled and sliced
  • 135 g (5 oz/1 cup) crushed ice
  • 1 tablespoon condensed milk

Preparation:

  1. Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend for 20 seconds, or until the ice has dissolved.
  2. Serve in tall glasses.
