Guava Fruit Juice ( Nam Farung )

guava-smoothy.jpg

Spring is coming, well at least in the Northern hemisphere! As with previous years, I'll be doing lighter food and drinks for the coming summer like this one. If you can get fresh guava, this is one of the most delicious ways to use it. It is a juice, really a smoothy, made from the pulp of the guava fruit.
Use larger older guava for this recipe, it will give a sweet/sour taste to the drink.

Ingredients
120 gms Guava Fruit
5 Tablespoons Sugar Syrup (50-50 sugar & water solution)
236 ml water ( boil )

Preparation
1. Peel the guava, take only the outer flesh minus the seeds in the middle.
2. Mix the guava, syrup and water and blend in a food processor.
3. Pour over crushed ice.
4. Optionally a tiny pinch of salt over the top fills out the flavours.

I love your site and have recommended it to many friends. I've even managed to make some recipes that my (slightly) picky boyfriend likes. I was wondering how you can tell if guava is ripe or overripe? I can't wait to try this recipe.

Thanks!

Squeeze it, if its flesh pushes in, it's ripe. If the skin is browning it's overripe. Very similar to a pear.
