8 Soursop Smoothie Recipes

When it comes to recipes, soursop, also known as graviola or guanabana (some call it thorny mango or thorny custard apple), is a lot likes its close cousin, the papaya.

It is a surprisingly versatile fruit that can be used to make anything from juices to smoothies, as well as serving as a healthy base for other recipes – dessert, cake, pie, you name it.

Today, we will restrict this discussion to smoothies as the aim of this post is to share soursop smoothie recipes to help you unlock the full power of this incredible tropical fruit.

Before we dive in, it’s good to note the most ideal soursop for whipping up smoothies is one that is turning lightly yellow on its rough exterior. The fruit should give in a wee bit when you give it a little squeeze.

As well, soursop used for smoothies should be seeded first before combining with the other ingredients.

That out of the way, check out these 8 soursop smoothie recipes that just so happen to be good for you.

  1. Mango Soursop Smoothie

The mango soursop smoothie brings together the nutritional goodness of soursop with the unmistakable flavor of sweet mangoes, culminating in a rich delicious tropical fusion.

What you need

  • 4 oz. frozen soursop pulp
  • 1/4 fresh mango, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup 2% fat cottage cheese
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder

Directions

Pour all your ingredients in a blender and process until smooth.

  1. Soursop Ginger Lime Smoothie

The next soursop smoothie recipe is one that marries the unique taste of graviola with something a little tarter: spicy ginger and zesty lime.

This recipe is perfect for anyone looking to detox (and who doesn’t, right?) as well as shedding excess weight.

Make it a daily habit in the morning to help you seize the day and live your best life.

What you need

  • 1 ripe soursop
  • 1 teaspoon ginger (grated)
  • 1 lime (juiced)
  • 3 cups water (alternatives include almond or hemp milk)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract (organic)
  • Honey or other natural sweeteners (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg (optional)

Directions

  • Put the soursop into the blender.
  • Add a little water (or almond or hemp milk).
  • Blend until smooth, adding the remaining water to achieve a thinner consistency (if desired).
  • Add the ginger, lime juice, and vanilla (and nutmeg if you fancy) and blend some more.
  • Add sweetener if desired

 

  1. Vietnamese Soursop Smoothie

A Vietnamese soursop smoothie involves combining three fruits, namely soursop, mango, and avocado.

This is as healthy as you are likely to find in a serving of smoothie and your body will thank you for it.

What you need

  • 1 soursop
  • 1 mango (ripe)
  • 1 small avocado
  • 1 cup condensed milk (or water if you prefer)

Directions

  • Mix your fruits in the blender and process until smooth.
  • Add the condensed milk (or water) and blend again.
  • Pour into glass and serve.

 

  1. Soursop Coconut Smoothie

Unless you live in a tropical climate where it’s virtually summer all year round, the soursop coconut smoothie is more of a summer beverage.

On its own, coconut water is usually a beautifying drink worth a sip all year long. However, it is during the hot months that it is particularly satisfying.

It makes for a great thirst quencher when mixed with soursop, but better yet, this smoothie offers untold natural benefits for your body.

What you need

  • 1/2 cup fresh soursop
  • Meat from one coconut
  • 2 cups coconut water cold
  • 1/2 cup crushed ice
  • About 8 mint leaves
  • Whole mint leaves to garnish

Directions

  • Take all your ingredients (except the mint leaves) and put them into the blender. Blend until smooth.
  • Throw the mint leaves in and pulse about twice or thrice – just long enough to break up the leaves without pureeing them.
  • Pour into glasses and top with the whole mint leaves.

 

  1. Pineapple Soursop Smoothie

The pineapple soursop smoothie is more than just a blend of two fruits. Bananas also factor into the equation, and so does spinach (for those of us who like adding a green twist to things).

Sprinkle a hint of ginger and you what you get is an exciting combo that yields a sweet, luscious taste.

What you need

  • 1 cup soursop (chopped)
  • 1 cup frozen pineapple chunks
  • 1 medium banana
  • 1 cup fresh spinach, lightly packed
  • 1-inch fresh ginger (peeled and chopped)
  • 1 cup of water
  • Ice

Directions

  • Put all your ingredients (except the ice) into a high-powered blender and process until smooth.
  • Add ice gradually and process until you achieve desired consistency.

We know, soursop fruit can be hard to come by in some places, especially when you need them on a regular for family smoothie recipes. Plus, buying them in bulk can be an expensive affair sometimes.

A workaround to this is to use graviola fruit powder or graviola leaf tea which is certain to stretch longer than regular fruit will. However, it is always good to insist on organic, non-GMO and source your supplies from a reliable source.

Luckily, we have you covered on this front.

You can use our Organic Graviola Leaf Tea, Graviola Fruit Powder, or Graviola Leaf Liquid Extract to whip up some great-tasting soursop smoothies without the hassle associated with sourcing fresh, organic fruit.

  • Put the strawberries and blueberries into blender and process until smooth.
  • Pour the soursop tea into the blender.
  • For added thickness, add two scoops of soursop ice cream. Alternatively, you can add a glass of fresh milk.
  • Blend for a few more seconds until the mixture is consistent.
