I rarely buy bottled or boxed juices at the store, because so many of them only have 15%, 20% or 30% juice!! Apart from water, what else is in the mix? Read the labels and I bet you DO NOT WANT the other stuff in the juice. When I do find a brand that has 100% juice I stick to it or I make my own.
Summer calls for tropical cold beverages and here is one that will take you to the Caribbean in just one sip. Grab a jug and a couple glasses...enjoy!
4 large guavas, peeled and diced
1 cup water
1 lemon, juiced
1/2 tsp almond extract
Sugar (to taste)
- Place guava in a blender then pour in water and lemon juice. Blend until smooth.
- Place a sieve over a jug and pour juice into the sieve. Use a spoon or spatula to help press liquid through sieve. Discard seeds and any pulp.
- (If it's too thick for your taste, you can definitely add a little more water.)
- Add almond extract, sugar to taste and stir.
- Serve over ice.
