Strain the juice well so the end product isn't too pulpy and has a smooth consistency. Basically, this fruit comes from a plant that belongs to the Myrtaceae family that is commonly found tropical and sub-tropical regions.
While it is usually eaten raw, it is also used in cooking, where it has been popular for making jellies, jams and juices. This fruit has an anti-tumor property that has been linked to the presence of compounds, including quercetin, lycopene, vitamin C and various polyphenols, which act as potent antioxidants that neutralize free radicals generated in your body that can cause cancerous growth.
In fact, there is strong evidence that demonstrates the potential of guava extract in preventing breast, prostate, colon, lung and skin cancer. Its role in this aspect is also well attributed to its anti-inflammatory qualities and its adeptness to arrest anarchic molecules, such as prostaglandins, appearing in rheumatoid arthritis and other diseases.
This fruit is also getting affluent in vitamins A and C, as well as antioxidants, such as carotene and lycopene that helps with protecting your skin from accomplished lines and wrinkles. While old-age is a natural stage that we reach in life, we can prolong the process by consuming guava on a regular basis.
An abstraction actually shows that the fruit can lower sugar levels in diabetic patients. Aside from this, the insulin-like action that guavas possess makes such fruits acutely acceptable for diabetic patients.
It is said that a single guava fruit can fulfill about 12% of your circadian-recommended assimilation of fiber in the body, which is good for your digestive health. Its fiber can help with freeing up blocked digestive tracks, eventually abating constipation.
This fruit contains vitamins B3 and B6, as well as niacin and pyridoxine, which are known to help in improving your nerves and the brain. Like other fruits, guavas are a classic trigger for bloating, as it is rich in a type of sugar, known as fructose.
In fact, researchers believe that up to 40% of people are suffering from a condition referred to as fructose malabsorption, where this sugar is inefficiently absorbed in the small intestine. As guavas carry seeds to make new plants, it is natural for them not to be fully digested by humans, as seeds are designed to survive transit and get deposited in new locations to grow new plants or trees.
Overconsumption of this fruit will not only spike your blood sugar, but it will also make you unable to sustain it for very long. While it helps us with fiber, it is not sufficient to prevent a crash in our blood sugar after eating it.
And for the case of the guava, you would eat it raw with the skin, so your chance of ingesting bacteria can be high. According to experts, many people eat sufficient amounts of fruits in their daily diets to reduce their risk of developing certain health conditions, with the help of their healthy contents.
Unfortunately, fresh fruits, including guavas, are not always available in many places, and if they are, they would be expensive to buy. This is especially true for guavas, considering that they are only grown in tropical and sub-tropical regions, making them scarce in other parts of the world.
A delicious, fruity, tropical paradise in a cup sounds perfect while the fruity tropical paradise I live in is on fire at a heat index of 102 degrees F every day. I personally added significantly more ginger to one of the batches I recipe tested to give it a zippy, spicy ginger kick and it was so good, so don't be afraid of adding more of an ingredient you love.
Another fantastic thing about this guava coconut milk drink is that it's vegan, it's great for those who are lactose intolerant but still want a creamy drink and it can easily be turned veto and paleo by swapping the sugar for monk fruit sweetener or stevia. Guava is also super healthy with 3 times more vitamin C than an orange, full of manganese, and can aid in digestion.
And considering you're simply putting fresh ginger slices in pineapple juice and sugar over a medium heat, this should tell you how easy the rest of the recipe is. Make the ginger pineapple syrup ahead of time and put in the fridge to cool Mix together the syrup, guava juice, passion fruit juice, and coconut milk together in a pitcher.
In a small saucepan, mix all the ingredients for the pineapple ginger syrup together over medium heat. Pour into a heat-safe container with a lid and let cool completely in the refrigerator.

Can’t find salted duck eggs or sea grapes at the local grocery store? The newly opened Filipino Village grocery in Mounds View has those, plus Drumstick leaves, banana flowers, milk fish and more.
Herman and Faith Root, owners of the only Filipino-specific grocery in Ramsey County, opened the store in November and found it was more than just Filipino expats who craved their food. The store, which sits at the corner of Edgewood Drive and County Road I, is about the size of a gas station mini-mart.
It offers fresh fruits and vegetables, frozen meats, a myriad of spices, a cooler of specialty juices and plenty of Filipino snacks. The island nation is named for King Phillip II of Spain and was part of the Spanish empire for 300 years.
Food has been flying off the shelves faster than the Roots can get it in from the Philippines where severe COVID-19 restrictions have slowed production and interfered with harvests. As the oldest, he had been living on his own for two years, separated from his siblings who were sent to an orphanage in Cebu, Philippines, after their parents were unable to care for them.
Root tried programs to become a medical tech and later a mechanic but would always end up dropping out to work in order to pay the bills. He has plans to expand into the former laundry next door and add a commercial kitchen so customers can taste authentic Filipino dishes such as Swam Na Mai's, a soup made with corn and Drumstick (or Maringá) leaves.

The Good : Tastes good, Novelty Bad: Slightly watery taste, Could be a lot more nutritious! The Basics: Not food to try to live on, Dole Sensation Natural Guava juice is a good dessert on cold nights or just when one wants something different from standard hot chocolate! Having returned from our latest trip with rather grave health concerns for my wife, this summer finds us stocking up on more healthy food and drink than usual.
To play along and trick my heart into something a little more healthy than coffee, black tea and cocoa, my wife picked me up some Dole Sensation Natural Guava juice. This is my first, that I can recall, juice review and despite my enjoying the novelty of the flavor, Dole Sensation Natural Guava juice could be better in a number of ways.
But, as my wife and I are rapidly discovering, store bought juices like Dole Sensation Natural Guava juice are not the incredible health food love fest that many people hope it would be! The blue, pink and green carton is like a standard half gallon milk container and is found currently in the refrigerated juice section of most major grocery stores.
Simply unscrew the spout at the top of the container (the first time one does this, they must remove the plastic safety seal from inside) and pour the contents into a glass. Pouring the Dole Sensation Natural Guava juice reveals a light fruit juice which has a vaguely citrus aroma.
Guava smells a lot like mango and the Dole Sensation Natural juice prepares the consumer for that taste well. This guava juice is initially sweet, like apple juice, then ends with just enough tartness to suggest a citrus flavor.
As it washes over the tongue, I recall flattened grapefruit soda and the middle taste is precisely that flavor. I always thought fruit juices were nutritious, but this one is not exactly blowing the doors of good health wide open.
What baffled me, though, was that Dole Sensation Natural Guava juice has no vitamins, calcium or iron and the only mineral it has is a trace amount (1% RDA from 35 mg) of potassium. While Dole Sensation Natural Guava juice tastes sweet, light and different from any other single juice, it is not nutritious or delicious enough to make one want to stock up on it.
I got this recipe from my aunt a few years back. Shegave me a bottle ofthiswine andtherecipewhenshe visited me while I was holidaying in my hometown. Guava / Pereira is not easily available here anywhere found some a couple of months backIimmediately made this wine.
Clean and sterilize the bottle / Bahrain or use another sterilized bottle and pour the strained wine and add Zaandam / Rock sugar mix well until kalkamdam / rock sugar dissolves. Because there’s really no wrong way to do pineapple, orange juice, coconut rum, grenadine, and cherries.
Holy holy this tropical drink goes down way too easily in the heat and humidity. I love pineapple juice and it’s a perfect pairing with coconut rum.
Or use some unsweetened cranberry juice and add a splash of that to brighten up the flavor of this rum mixed drink without adding any sweetness. It’s a 1:2 ratio of pineapple-orange juice and Malibu rum, so you can easily scale up from there.
A few readers have asked about using either all pineapple or all orange juice due to allergies or because they simply ran out of one. If you can’t find a pineapple-orange juice blend at your local grocery store, you’re welcome to buy them separately and combine them in this Malibu drink.
Equal parts orange and pineapple juice should work, but play around with the ratios to find a combination you love. I always eyeball the amount of grenadine I use in this Malibu rum drink, and I encourage you to do the same.
