Recipe: For 1 liter = 4 cups


2 cups of fresh pineapple chunks ( pineapple peeled & brown bits cut out, cut into smaller chunks

2 cups of fresh ripe strawberries( I used the 1st Belgian strawberries from Hoogstraten!), strawberries cleaned, hulled & cut into 4 ( measured when cut into 4 )

80 ml of Licor 43 liqueur = vegan πŸ™‚Β + Gluten-free too! πŸ™‚

1 cup of coconut milk ( a can of coconut milk, well shaken, poured into a pot & whisked with a whisk until fully emulsified, Β (1 cup measured )

1 tablespoon of Maple syrup, grade C

What is Licor 43 ( cuarenta y tres )?

Licor 43, or Cuarenta y tres (Spanish for “43”), is a bright yellow Spanish liqueur.Β It is made from citrus and fruit juices, flavored with vanilla &Β other aromatic herbs and spices, in total 43 different ingredients (hence the name).

The story behind Licor 43 dates back to the time of the Romans. After having conquered the city of Quart Hadas,Β they discovered liquor made from a combination of citrus fruits and aromatic plants. This drink’s popularity soon traversed the leadership hierarchy of the Roman Empire. This popularity has continued to present day culture. Made of a mix of citrus and orange blossom flavors with a subtle vanilla tone, a sip of Licor 43 is marketed as β€œconjuring a feeling of a summer”.

Licor 43 also known as “Cuarenta Y Tres” is 31% alcohol and is a light bodied, sweet liqueur. In color it is yellow tinged with a touch of gold. The aroma is sharp, warm, and complex, with vanilla up front and then tangy sweet fruit, spices, and an aged rum like presence. The flavor is similar to the aroma: vanilla, complex intermixed spices, tangy fruits, and hints of citrus, carried by a flavor similar to fine aged rum. Licor 43 is veganΒ Β & Gluten-free too!

Licor 43!

    Nice smoothie Sophie, especially with the booze πŸ™‚
    Have a great weekend!

    YUM! I wonder if you could freeze those smoothies and make boozy vegan smoothie popsicles? Might be something to make on a hot summers day? ;). I have been making home made kefir from my home made organic soymilk and its amazing! I am using it in my breakfast green smoothies and it obviously has a bit of an alcoholic kick to it and a fair bit of carbonation. Here’s to boozie smoothies all round! πŸ˜‰

  17. Lisa says:

    Oooh! healthy hooch..I love it! I love the combo of coconut, pineapple and strawberry – it’s a Pina Coladaberry!

  18. gotastΓ© says:
