Soursop Juice Drink
I absolutely loved the taste of soursop but it is not one of those things that I eat that often. It is one of those when I’m on holiday in the West Indies type things. It only occured to me to buy some when I met a lovely Jamaican lady in our local shop, who was in the process of purchasing three huge soursops. When I asked her what she was going to make with them she told me she was going to make a “nice juice drink”. To my understanding of Jamaican beverages this would normally involve full fat milk and lots of condensed milk too. I thought there had to be another option to get that same creamy deliciousness yet it weigh a little lighter on the dairy front. Never one to baulk a challenge (even if I did set it for myself) I came up with this solution. I hope you will find it as delicious as we did!
Ingredients – makes 2 large glasses
600 ml water
200 ml coconut milk
4 tbsp agave, honey or xylitol
1/2 nutmeg grated
3 dashes Angostura bitters (optional)
1 vanilla bean pod or 1 tspn vanilla extract
Remove the flesh from the soursop and place in a large bowl. Remove and remaining fibres, add water and massage a little making sure to remove the all seeds.
Add all remaining ingredients, blend and serve straight away.
This drink is a little glass of creamy heaven!
