Guinep Drink

4 ½ pounds (2kg) guinep

4-5 cups water

Brown sugar to taste

2 tablespoons lime juice

Sliced lime

  1. Remove the skin from the guinep
  2. Soak the seeds in a little water, rubbing them intermittently to remove as much pulp from the seed as possible.
  3. Throw away the seeds after removing pulp
  4. Add brown sugar and lime juice to pulp
  5. Blend thoroughly

Add sliced lime and serve chilled

Soursop Juice

1 ripe soursop

Condensed milk

Grated nutmeg

½ teaspoon lime juice (or 1 teaspoon lemon juice)

3 cups water

  1. Remove skin from the soursop, leaving the white pulp
  2. Pour water and 1 cup of the soursop pulp (including seeds) in a blender and blend on the lowest speed, turning blender in order to separate the pulp from the seeds. (This can also be done manually by placing a large sieve in a bowl with water – use your hands to thoroughly knead the soursop, separating the pulp from the seeds.)
  1. Strain and remove seeds. For thicker drink, return some of the pulp to the watery mixture
  2. Sweeten with condensed milk to taste, and add lime juice
  3. Sprinkle nutmeg on top and serve over ice
