At the Instituto Familiar y Social I was taught this basic formula for fruit preparados. You can substitute any other fruit you have available; vary the amount of sugar according to how sweet the fruit is. It’s so simple that you hardly even need a recipe once you’ve tried one example; I suggest you explore the frozen tropical fruit pulps in Latin American markets and come up with your own favorite preparados or aguas frescas.
