Just because it's summer, it's time for another vacation-related post! A visit to Jonah's Fruitshake is one of the must-dos when in Boracay. This fruitshake joint is located beachfront in Station 1. You may opt to have your orders for dine-in, where your fruitshakes would be served in tall and wide glasses, or choose to have it for take-out, where it will be served in plastic bottles.
Initially, I was a bit skeptical on how people claimed that Jonah's Fruitshake serves "the best fruitshakes ever" and such. However, all it took was a sip for me to believe.
Banana Choco Peanut (P110.00)
I asked the waitress what their bestselling fruitshake was, and the Banana Choco Peanut was one of those that she mentioned that tickled my fancy. Indeed, I loved this how thick, creamy and chunky(!) this drink was. It tasted like banana and chocnut mixed together, with small chunks of crispy peanuts that added a unique texture and twist to the drink. The shake was thick, let me repeat, that you'd have to exert more effort in sipping it just so it would come up to the straw (versus the watery shakes I have tried in other restaurants before), but I am so not complaining since it's really, really good.
Melon Mango (P110.00)
On my second visit, I wanted to try something more fruity and light, hence I chose Melon Mango. This fruitshake was less dense than the banana-based shakes, but of course still refreshing. Jonah's Fruitshakes are sweet, but never too sweet or overdone. However, I wasn't as delighted with this one compared to my first Jonah's Fruitshake experience. I was more satisfied with my first order of Banana Choco Peanut, since I'm into thicker, chocolatey shakes.
Melon Milk (P110.00)
Melon Banana (P110.00)
More melon-based drinks for my friends. Though refreshing, these tasted more ordinary than special.
Banana Choco Vanilla (P110.00)
Another fruitshake that I loved was Banana Choco Vanilla! It's a super thick and creamy banana shake with choco/vanilla milk in it. Quite similar with my beloved Banana Choco Peanut less the chunks and nuts. It tasted like the chocolate milk I used to drink as a kid. I would definitely order this the next time we get back to this beautiful island.
The thing is, you just have to order the right shake according to your preference, and you'd get that "best fruitshake ever" experience, too!
