Easy Fresh Guava Juice Recipe

I adore the smell and taste of guava. It is bright, tropical and packed with tons of Vitamin C. Actually, 100 grams of fresh guava has about 300% the recommended daily value for Vitamin C!

And this simple guava juice recipe is so easy to make with just 3 ingredients and about 15 minutes. Simple, quick and delicious!

Guava juice ingredients

For this recipe, I used:

  • guavas: I’m using Red Indian guava or pink guava. It has light green to yellow skin and light pink flesh on the inside. You can substitute the pink variety for the white or Cayenne guava in this recipe. They will be a different color but still have that wonderful guava taste.
  • water: for diluting.
  • sugar: Here I am using brown sugar but feel free to substitute with your favorite sweeteners like honey, palm sugar, agave and more.

Equipment for this recipe

To make guava juice, you will need a blender and strainer. Here I am using the nutri-blender attachment from my Ninja kitchen system (which you can find on Amazon) but any blender will do the trick.

How to make guava juice

Prep the guavas

Step 1: Wash the guavas thoroughly with warm water.

Step 2: The guava peels are edible and can be left on and blended to make the drink. But, I purchased these guavas from the market and didn’t know if they were sprayed with any pesticides. So, I peeled the guavas using a small paring knife.

Step 3: Cut each guava in quarters. You may see small white worms wriggling around in the fruit. You can rinse the flesh to remove them but they are harmless and can add a little protein to your juice. Luckily, these guavas I purchased from the market were worm-free!

Blend

Step 4: Add the peeled guava quarters, water and sugar to the blender or in my case the Ninja nutri-blender.

Step 5: Blend everything together until smooth.

Step 6: Strain the juice to remove any seed bits.

Step 7: Taste test at this point and adjust the sweetness and dilution of the juice to your own preferences.

Step 8: Place in the fridge to chill and serve cold. My mom loves freezing the juice in ice trays and using a guava ice block in her smoothies every day.

Where to buy guava juice

Of course, you can skip these steps and just purchase guava juice from Amazon. It’s sometimes called guava nectar on there. Here are a couple great options.

Guava juice benefits

So, what is guava juice good for? According to this 2016 Thai study, every part of the guava plant from roots, bark, leaves and fruits have potential medicinal use. It cited several lab and animal studies that linked guava to antioxidant and anti-hypertensive benefits. It has also been showed to help dilate blood vessels and protect the cardiovascular system.
