Fruit Punch

 fruid punch

We called this “Es Buah” in Indonesian language. My auntie made the best fruit punch ever. She was kind enough to make some for the party plus sharing the recipe. This is not your ordinary fruit punch, but rather cut up fruit with some sweet sugar syrup. Very simple to make, yet satisfying.

Whilst slurping away the sweet liquid, you can also munch on the chewy and juicy fruit. How great is that? Excellent for me who live in a country with 86% humidity all year long


1 raw papaya

1 pineapple

2 jicama

5 (1 kg) cucumbers

500 gr kolang kaling

2 kg sugar

2 liters water

1 bottle of lychee concentrate / syrup

  • Peel and cubed raw pineapple, papaya and jicama into 0.5” bite sizes
  • Cube cucumbers into 0.5” bite sizes
  • In a large stock pot, boil water and sugar, about 15 minutes
  • Blanch pineapple cubes for 1 minute and drain, pat dry with paper towel
  • Using the same pot and sugar syrup, bring raw papaya, turnips, cucumbers and kolang kaling to a boil. Drain and remove the fruit cubes. Reserve liquid
  • Sit the liquid until it cools completely. Add the fruit cubes and pineapple cubes back into the sugar syrup
  • Add the lychee syrup
  • Refrigerate for 4 hours and serve with ice cubes

    Oh wow, I never knew you can use cucumber for this. My mum likes to make this. I shall tell her that she can try to make this with cucumber and jicama. This is very refreshing treat!

    Looks very refreshing and yummy! Just wondering if you really have to use 2 kg of sugar for this drink? I love your blog by the way! Everything looks delicious =)
