Batido is a Cuban milkshake (or what we would call a smoothie since there is no ice cream) commonly made with fresh bananas, pineapple juice and milk but can also include fresh mango, pineapple or even papaya! It isn’t as sweet as your typical summertime milkshake and is much healthier as there is no ice cream! Whatever your fruit of preference may be, Batido is a true winner in my book!
