Vaifala Samoa

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.

Ingredients

Directions

  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).
