Surprisingly, the hot season in Asia gets pretty toasty. Fresh fruit shakes are a cheap and delicious way to cool down and thankfully are available on almost every street corner. While the quality often varies, we definitely found our favourite so far in Luang Prabang.
After a delicious lunch just around the corner, this stand and it’s charming owner caught our eyes for a couple of reasons. Most shakes in Laos are priced at 10,000 Kip and this place was no different.
What was different however, was the sheer amount of fruit that was going into her drinks. We ordered one melon and one banana shake and this lady literally used at least ten small bananas and one whole melon to make them (plus a splash of condensed milk added with our permission).
Our smoothies were served to us in what can only be described as small buckets. We slowly drank our litre of pure deliciousness and watched the world go by. Smoothies don’t get much better!
IN SHORT – For quality, charm and a small mountain of fresh fruits, we can not recommend this place enough!
