is a fruit drink which originated in Tonga
and is usually made as a summertime refreshment. It is a blend of water
, coconut milk
and any variety of pulped tropical fruit
such as coconut
but is almost always watermelon as it is plentiful in Tonga. A small amount of sugar may be added, although the recipe is considerably sweet on its own.
The most popular variation is a simple blend of coconut milk, watermelon and mango. Ice cubes might also be added to make a sort of smoothie; wine is also a popular addition.
