Costa Rica Fresh Fruit!

On Feria Day (Farmers’ Market Day) I process some of the fruit purchased . . .

. . . and then have a fruit plate for lunch!  🙂

I cut up half or more of the mango, pineapple and papaya into little squares and put in zip lock bags in the freezer to use in my fresh fruit frescos, refrescos de frutas, batidos, jugo de naturales or just smoothies for people from the states. And there are a lot of other names for drinks made from fresh fruit, plus a rice, cinnamon, and milk drink call horchata or an even better version with vanilla ice cream called leche muella. Fruit rules in Costa Rica!

Probably at least one fruit here you have never heard of! And sorry, but I have not tried all of them yet! And this list is not all of the fruits found here. 

When eating a fruit, think of the person who planted the tree.

  1. Hi Charlie This is my third try to post so….. I read your blog every morning. Love the pictures. Enjoying watching your lovely home being decorated. The fruit plate looks just delicious.

  2. Thanks! I'm about to get my nest feathered, so to speak. Soon I will post how I have replaced most of the rental art with some of my art. Then I will just live in the house and start traveling more as I have always intended to do.
