Black Plum Shandies

Prep Time10 mins
Total Time10 mins
Servings: 4 drinks


  • 5 black plums halved (I used black but I see no reason why yellow, red or another variety wouldn’t work)
  • 3 tablespoons pure cane sugar
  • Beer of choice I liked this with something super clean like a pilsner


  • To a blender, add the plum halves and sugar. Blend until smooth-ish. If your plums aren't all that ripe, you may need to add a splash of water to get it started. Pour the puree through a strainer and discard the pulp.
  • Divide the strained puree between glasses (I added about 3 to 4 tablespoons per glass). Top with beer.
