What is Guyabano? (Soursop)
Guyabano fruit grows abundantly in tropical regions and is such an easy fruit tree to grow because it requires very minimal attention. The guyabano fruit tastes sour like that of a strawberry but has a milky flavor. It is widely known to be made into a concentrate because of the richness of the fruit.
Health benefits for Guyabano (Soursop):
- A good source of antioxidants

Tips on How to Make Guyabano Smoothie:
- You can freeze this smoothie and make it into a guyabano ice cream
- Remove the guyabano seeds prior to freezing them- it saves you a lot of time.
- Don’t forget to keep your guyabano pulp or chunks in the freezer when you’re not using it. They tend to change in color because of the reaction it has when exposed to air. Keeping them in an airtight container and freezing them prevents that to happen.
