It’s likely you haven’t heard of it before, but this Caribbean fruit is one that’s definitely worth getting to know. Soursop is found in South America, the Caribbean and Africa and is heralded for its amazing ability to fight cancer cells. Backed for its beneficial effects on cancer by several reputed studies, Soursop is also used for its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, which can treat infections and boost the body’s overall immune system.
Soursop juice couldn’t be easier to make and considering its abilities, you should give it a go.
1. Mash the fruit
Select a ripe Soursop fruit and wash it well to remove any excess dirt caught in the spikes. Peel the skin by hand and remove the seeds. From there, the flesh of the fruit should be added to a large bowl, within which 1/2 cup of milk and 1 cup of water. Mash the soursop in with the milk and water with your hand, making sure all of the juice is released. Once this is complete, discard the core and stir the juice so it’s ready to serve.
2. Strain the fruit
For a slightly different method, you can try straining soursop.
First, wash and peel the fruit. Remove the seeds and chop the flesh, making sure you catch the juice that’s released. Using a strainer, strain the flesh until you’re once again left with just the core. To give the drink that extra flavor, add a little lime juice, or perhaps even some ginger and sugar.
3. The no-fuss blend
If you don’t have time for either of the above methods, simply chop the soursor and throw it in a blender. Add a little milk and water to make the drink more fluid, blend and you’re good to go.
