Coconut Hwa Che

Good morning!

I can’t believe it’s already Wednesday! I am so excited because the day after tomorrow, me and my family are going on a mini vacation to San Francisco. We are planning to stay at a nice 4 star hotel near Half Moon Bay. Apparently there are some nice restaurants in the area so I’m pretty excited to explore!

It’s been really fun going to grocery stores lately, with all kinds of colorful and sweet fruits all around. I’ve been buying lots of them, too, like watermelon, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, peaches… You name it. I usually eat them with my favorite Greek yogurt for breakfast but yesterday morning, I decided to be more adventurous and make one of my favorite Korean fruit punch, “Hwache”.

Hwache is very popular during Summer time. Usually it is made with a cold drink called “Cider” that tastes a lot like 7up or sprite, often mixed with milk. I didn’t have any cider so I decided to make a different version of Hwache. I used Coconut milk and oh my goodness, the Hwache was so delicious! I used variety of fruit but you can use one or two kinds, or many more kinds if you’d like.

So get some watermelons and enjoy this cold, delicious Korean Hwache sometime!
