Tizana. Fruit Punch Tropical Fruit Salad

In Venezuela, a Tizana is so common, yummy and healthy treat. We call it Tizana but it’s actually a like a fruit salad and a fruit punch juice =D. I personally love it. It’s refreshing and so purifying. For Summer is the perfect treat.

To calm the typical heat of the summer dates, I love preparing a Fruit Tizana, and feel closer to my beloved Venezuela.

Tizana Venezolana

It is a very refreshing mix of fruits, juices or citrus fruit juices, and crushed ice. We usually drink it at any time of the day. In my case, I would buy a “mini” (½ liter) of Tizana from Fruits for breakfast, and boy did I have breakfast!

In any corner or on the beach of my country you will found a “cart” and a nice gentleman who sells Tizanas. Also in breakfast or coffee shops, you can find tizanas. This to say it’s a tradition.

It is something different and uncommon around here, it is not a fruit salad or a fruit salad, this Fruit Tizana is more liquid and if you want you can add a little Rum or Geneva to its preparation.

For this occasion, I have served her in these cute ice cream glasses but you can serve it in any glass or even a bowl if that makes you happy.

It’s SO easy to make that you can make it any time with any fruit you like. You don’t need to have all the fruits I’m mentioning but of course the more the better =D. You can have this treat at any time of the day. Yummmm

Directions

  • Peel the clementines, pineapple, mango, papaya, melon and watermelon chop them into cubes and set aside.
  • Chop apples and peaches into cubes and set aside.
  • In a large bold, mix the orange, grapefruit, lime, pineapple juices with the fruit, add the sugar or honey, grenadine and stir well. Mix well and take to the fridge for 2 hours.
  • When serving, put crushed ice to taste in the glasses with the tizana so that it is very cold.

    HI Cami! I’m hopping over from Let’s Get Real to check out your fruit salad. It really looks delicous. I just love fruit salad the juice is my favorite. I often see that folks pull out the juice of a fruit salad so it doesn’t get all over a picnic plate. I really like that you added extra juice and served it in a bowl so you don’t have to worry about the extra juice.
