Guava drink

Posted on July 29, 2009. Filed under: Drinks, Home Remedies, Pregnancy recipes | Tags: , , , |

Guava is a natural laxative as it is high in fibre and can help you if you’re having digestive problems like constipation. This unusual concoction is a powerhouse of vitamin C and fibre. Have it with your afternoon snack to complement a chat-pata dish. Remember to use fully ripened guavas as they taste the best and also you need to add less sugar to this drink thus making it more healthy.

Preparation Time : 10 mins.
Cooking Time : 20 mins.

Serves 6.

Ingredients
2 large guavas
1/4 cup sugar
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tablespoon ginger juice
Method
1. Wash and cut the guavas into large cubes.
2. Place these in a saucepan along with the sugar and 11/2 cups of water.
3. Bring to a boil and simmer till the guavas are tender.
4. Cool completely and puree in a blender.
5. Add the ginger juice and lemon juice and mix well.
6. Fill half a glass with the pulp and top up with chilled water or ice-cubes and serve immediately.
7. Repeat to make 5 more drinks.
Tips
You can also make a large batch when guavas are in season. Store the guava pulp in a sterilised bottle and refrigerate. Use as required.
The easiest way to make ginger juice is to grate the ginger and squeeze out the juice.
