How to Make Kamias Shake

The summer heat getting to you? Try a refreshing beverage made from an unusual backyard fruit: Kamias. Kamias, or the Bilimbi, is a tart fruit that’s popularly used as a souring agent for sinigang and pangat na isda. It’s also popular as a snack dipped in rock salt, or as a side dish paired with tiny shrimp called alamang.

Refreshing Kamias Shake

My mom brought home a large amount of fresh kamias after a trip from the North. Definitely too many for snacking and quickly ripening, I decided to try blending some of them into fruit shakes. I threw some washed and sliced fruits into the blender, along with some ice cubes, sugar and a bit of water then gave it a whirl. The resulting shake was a very strongly flavored sweet and sour drink. The tanginess was pleasantly refreshing and just the thing to enjoy during a hot summer afternoon.
