Origin of 'Otai

ʻOtai is a fruit drink, which originated in Tonga. They make variations of the drink with scraped mangos and vi (which is a native Tongan fruit). In Tonga they don't usually have half and half, but instead use freshly squeezed coconut milk, that is the most delicious to me. This is not to be mistaken for the juice of the coconut. I'll save that for another hub.

Tongans even crack out the water biscuits or breakfast crackers and just break that into the drink, which adds more dimension!!

Last time we made 'Otai, our grandchildren just couldn't get enough.
