Do you know how to make soursop juice? Or how about what soursop even is?
You can see it has yellow green skin. It’s also fairly soft… and when it gets that way, it’s perfect to make soursop juice.
The juice has this refreshing, unique flavor. It’s really hard to describe. Think about mixing pineapple and berries. That’s how soursop juice tastes, but you’ll find yourself getting a slightly citrusy aftertaste.
There’s no mistaking that unique, strong flavor. I absolutely love it! Soursop juice and soursop ice cream are amazing.
HOW TO MAKE SOURSOP JUICE
PEEL THE FRUIT
How to peel soursop? When the fruit is ripe, the skin is very easy to peel. Just cut into the fruit and pull the skin off. It’s that simple and easy.
REMOVE THE CENTER
The pulp has this light, cottony texture. But the center is stiffer and sponge-like. You don’t want that. Cut the center out and discard it or add it to your compost bin.
REMOVE THE SEEDS
Soursop seeds contain a compound called annonacin; which is considered a neurotoxin. In high doses, this toxin can damage your nervous system. So it’s important to remove all the seeds (but if you miss one, it’s ok, your nervous system will be fine).
The seeds are large so it’s easy to see and remove. I find it’s best to squeeze the pulp with my hands so the seeds just pop out. You can use a strainer as well with a bowl underneath to catch all the juicy goodness.
BLEND THE PULP
With all the seeds removed, add the pulp in small portions to your blender.
Blend for a couple minutes. If the pulp is too thick, add a little water (a quarter cup at a time) and continue blending.
The less water you add, the thicker and almost creamier the texture of the soursop juice. More water you will give a thinner juice.
SWEETEN AND FLAVOR
While in the blender, add your favorite sweetener to the juice. we love using condensed milk for an even creamier consistency. I usually use half a tin of condensed milk… but sugar works too.
Then chill the juice in the fridge.
