Topic: Tropical Fruit Salad Ecuador Dessert Recipe

They eat and drink is an Ecuadorian fruit salad, which, as its name indicates, can be eaten and drunk. This delicious and juicy fruit salad is prepared with papaya, ripe bananas or bananas, pineapple, and orange juice.

The fruits are chopped into tiny cubes and enough orange juice is added for the fruit salad to be taken as a drink. You can also serve this fruit salad as a dessert. The basic recipe for eating and drink should always include papaya, banana, and orange juice. I add pineapple because my mom always prepared it that way, I love the texture and acidity that pineapple gives it and the contrast of flavors it creates with papaya and banana. I have also tried it with other fruits, such as mangoes, babaco, Badea, strawberries, blackberries, etc.

The best eats and drinks are always prepared with super fresh fruit, and depending on the natural sweetness of the fruits it is not necessary to add sugar or honey - I also like to serve it accompanied by whipped cream or whipped cream sweetened with honey, which gives it an extra sweet touch. To prepare the honey whipped cream, mix 1 cup of liquid cream with 2 tablespoons of honey. Honey gives a great flavor to whipped cream and is a good addition to fruit salad.

Papaya, pineapple, and orange juice can be made a few hours in advance, but peel and chop the bananas just before serving to avoid browning. If you want a more drink-style version, you can increase the amount of orange juice. You can also turn to eat and drink into a delicious cocktail or fruit salad for adults by adding a little rum, cachaca, or brandy.
