This Jamaican sour sop drink recipe is easy, tasty and can be made one of two (2) ways, either sweetened with condensed milk or with sugar.
Take a look at the ingredients and the tip below for an alternative to the taste of this smooth-tasting Jamaican favourite with just the change of ONE ingredient.
But first...Learn something about the fruit itself...
Soursop is also called graviola, and it is a large, spiny, green tropical fruit with a sweet white flesh that is the basis for several beverages, ice creams and other sweet foods. This fruit is also popular in South America.
Beyond its usefulness as a food, however, soursop also contains natural compounds with medicinal properties, making it potentially beneficial for your health.
The tree grows to a height of about 25 or 30 feet and it produces a large fruit that may reach a length of up to 12 inches.
Soursop also contains abundant amount of vitamin C and several B vitamins as well such as thiamin, riboflavin and niacin. It also has calcium, phosphorus and a small amount of iron.
Now for the recipe...
a. Remove skin from sour sop
b. Place 3 cups of water and 1 cup of soursop pulp (seeds included) in blender.
c. Blend for 2 seconds on the lowest speed, turning blender on and off, in order not to crush seeds, but to take off the pulp.
d. Strain and remove seeds.
e. You may return pulp to the juice to make a thicker drink but it does not enhance the flavour very much more.
f. Sweeten with condense milk, a dash of nutmeg and about 1/2 teaspoon lime juice.
g. Serve with crushed ice.
Serves 3 to 4
Tip: This is the way MOST Jamaicans make soursop drink, but a more refreshing drink can be made by sweetening the juice with sugar and limes and serving over crushed ice.
So try this sweet-tasting Jamaican Sour Sop drink Recipe BOTH ways (with condensed milk and sugar and lime) and choose the one that best suits your taste buds.
