Before Making Kunu Aya




Make sure to soak the Aya overnight or at least for 6 hours in water. They need to be soft, in order to blend them later. Also, water will take away the bitterness, if the nuts are a bit old. Before putting them into water, remove the stones and wash the nuts. Remember, that washing the Aya may be challenging as it requires a lot of scrubbing. It is advised to change water from time to time.

The process of making Kunu Aya

1. Cut the ginger, dates and the coconut flesh into pieces.

2. Take the soaked Aya nuts and rinse them in order to get rid of all the excess water.

3. Put ginger, Aya nuts, coconut flesh and dates into a blender.

4. Grind all the ingredients to a smooth paste, add water if needed.

5. Strain the paste through a filter. You can use cheesecloth as well.

6. Pour half of the coconut milk into a blender.

7.. Add the blended paste and mix well.

8. Add the remaining half of the coconut milk.

Tip: Taste it. If you want to make it sweet, then add honey. If you don’t like honey, you can add some sugar.

9. Refrigerate before serving.

10. Drink with cookies!

Tip: If you want to keep the Kunu Aya cold, you can add ice to it, but it may make the drink “watery.” Instead of water, you can use coconut milk or even coconut water. Then it will be cold, refreshing and full of flavor.
