Exotic fruits are all over Miami. But how do you eat them?
There is a funky fruit called the soursop – but most of us here in Miami know it as a guanábana.
What we know about the guanabana
It grows well in areas with lots of humidity, like sunny SoFlo.
Where the guanabana comes from
It’s native to the Caribbean and Central America.
What guanabana tastes like
It kinda tastes like a banana but also has a citrus kick to it and you can find them at local fruit stands (we love robertishere.com).
How to eat a guanabana
Some people think that making tea with its fruit leaves can help with digestion and reduce inflammation. But at the very least, the guanábana is delicious in smoothies and milkshakes.
Here’s their recipe:
Prep time: 10 minutes
Total time: 10 minutes
1 cup whole milk
3 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
3 tablespoons sugar (to taste)
1/2 cup crushed ice
1 cup fresh ripe guanábana pulp
“Put everything in a blender except the ice and process until frothy. Add the crushed ice and process until the ice is ground fine and the batido is thick and rich.”
