The Fruit Shakes of Thailand That Won My Heart

Thailand is, of course, a land of many delicious foods, and I was looking forward to them long before I got here. What I didn’t expect to find were fruit smoothies on every corner. You point to a fruit from the cart, and the vendor chops it up in a blender with ice, a little water, and often corn syrup or honey. That’s it. And every single one I’ve had has been heavenly. Clearly, it’s the freshness of the fruit that makes it so good, but I also love that there’s no cream or yogurt or anything necessary to make it sweet and refreshing. Here are some photos of the many fruit smoothies I have loved.

  1. They all look great except, of course, the avocado smoothie. Barf me up a lung! Who ever thought of that? Probably the same guy who said, “hey, I’m gonna lick that ant’s butt!”
