Guyabano Smoothie is a delicious, refreshing and nutrient-dense drink that you can enjoy. It is a perfect thirst quencher snack for the family.
We have plenty of guyabano trees in our backyard in the province. When I was young, we would climb the big guyabano trees. We would look for ripe ones by just pressing its body.
My siblings and I would know that guyabano is ripe when the fruit looks mature, shiny and the spikes is stretched and far apart.
We would get fruit from a number of guyabano trees and there are 2 kinds of variety. One is really sweet and the other one is not as sweet and more sour.
