And another one: Soursop-ade ?

Independence Month!

Again we meet the sour sop. Earlier in the month I used this fruit to make the sticky glaze for some doughnuts. Now I’m going to show you a simple and refreshing drink.

I know you must be wondering, how is this a twist? Traditionally Sour sop is blended with milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and sugar; basically a sour sop milk shake.  This recipe only adds sugar, limes and water. Its kind of like a sour sop limeade, and you all know how much I love a good 'ade'. 

For me the traditional method is not a refreshing drink. Its too sweet and thick as if im drinking a dessert. I prefer refreshing drinks. And the addition of lime and water to the mix helps to tone down the milkshake qualities sour sop inherently has. Its still a thicker drink, but totally refreshing. 

This method is not novel but its very uncommon. So there’s the twist!

Makes a jug and a half of juice

Ingredients (Printable Recipe)

3 cups  sour sop
1.5 cups sugar
7 limes (juice)

  • Pour half the mixture back into the blender with 2 cups of water. Blend until smooth
  • Pour this smooth liquid into a fresh bowl and repeat the process for the other half of pulp
