Vaifala "Pineapple Drink"

Vaifala "Pineapple Drink"



Looking for a drink that is light and refreshing? Then try out Samoa's classic "Vaifala". Vaifala is a traditional Samoan drink of which there are a few variants. The main ingredient is pineapple which combines with either fresh young coconut, or coconut cream.



  1. Place the pineapple pieces and about half the fruit syrup in a large bowl.
  2. Pour in the sweetened condensed milk and water, then mix.
  3. Add sugar optional (Ideally 2 tablespoons).
  4. Chill well, or if serving immediately, throw in some ice.
  5. Before serving, stir well, because the pineapple has a tendency to settle, then pour into a large glass and serve with a spoon (this is a drink that you both drink and eat).

Alternative way of making Vaifala

½ of a pineapple pieces 440g
1 litre of water
1 tsp. of natural vanilla extract
Ice (lots & lots of ice!!!)

Add 3 table spoon of Savaii popo coconut cream and blend it together with the water and chunks of pineapple. Also add the vanilla extract. Once smooth, pour over lots of ice.
