OTAI: TONGAN COCONUT WATERMELON DRINK

OTAI: TONGAN COCONUT WATERMELON DRINK


Ingredients
  • ½ a ripe seedless watermelon (or 1 whole small seedless watermelon), cubed
  • 1 fresh mango, peeled and pitted
  • ½ cup shredded coconut
  • 1 7 oz can of coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Up to ½ cup of water (per your preference)
  • Ice

How to Make

Stage 1 - Blend Non-Watermelon Ingredients
  1. In a blender, combine your mango, shredded coconut, coconut milk, honey and lime juice
  2. Blend together until they are all well combined and you have a nice orangey liquid formed. Don't worry if it's a bit too thick, since it will mix with water from the watermelon
Stage 2 - Mash the Watermelon
  1. Place your watermelon in a large bowl. The larger the bowl, the better... just in case things might get a little messy
  2. With either a masher (like you would for mashed potatoes) or a fork, mash your watermelon down into smaller pieces. You'll want to keep some of the watermelon pieces intact, but otherwise mash the rest to free liquid
Stage 3 - Finish Your 'Otai
  1. To make your watermelon drink complete, combine your mango/coconut milk puree with your mashed watermelon in your large bowl. Mix around thoroughly until all ingredients are well merged together
  2. Transfer your 'otai to a cup or a pitcher, and enjoy!
