Jugo de Lulo Pina y Leche

Medelln, Colombia

I used to have this drink religiously with my almuerzo (lunch) in Cartagena, Colombia. It has a tangy, kiwi sweetness from the naranjilla (called "lulo" in Colombia) mixed with the citrusy tartness of pineapple - add sugar and milk and it becomes manna from the heavens. Oh, sweet magic of the gods. Salud chicos!

includes one gratifying milk mustache

Jugo de lulo, pina y leche
for 2
2 ripened naranjilla 
2 C milk
2 slices of ripened pineapple (chopped and core removed)
2 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar

Scoop out the naranjilla pulp into a blender. Add the chopped pineapples (must be very ripe). Blend until the fruit is a fine paste. Add sugar. Taste. Add more sugar if you want it on the sweet side. Add milk and blend for a couple seconds. Serve and enjoy.
