- Blend for approximately 30 seconds or until a smooth consistency is achieved.
- Pour into a glass for immediate refreshment or place in the refrigerator in an airtight container to enjoy later.
- A rambutan is a medium-sized tropical fruit covered by a spiky, hairy exterior that protects a delicious white sweet and tart fruit interior.
