Soursop (Guanabana) smoothie   Leave a comment

Soursop or Guanabana is a green fruit grown primarily in Belize, Central America and the West Indies. Its green skin is prickly.  Don’t eat the skin but do eat the creamy white inside core. You can find it online, at stores like Whole Foods, Latin and/or Caribbean markets. If you can find the actual fruit some places sell the core/pulp in frozen packets.   Here’s a Soursop smoothie recipe:

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup Soursop pulp (Like Goya Guanabana pulp)
1 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup coconut water or plain water
1 cup of ice
1/2 tsp cinnamon or nutmeg or both
1 tsp vanilla essence
3 tbsp of sugar (or more to your taste)
1/2 teaspoon salt

METHOD:

1. Using a blender or food processor blend all ingredients until creamy and smooth.
2. Add water as needed to keep the mixture circulating through the blender.

Note: you can put in ice-trays and freeze for later.
