Guinep juice is so refreshing! Paleo, gluten free, vegan, raw
Servings 4 servings
- 2 kg of fresh guineps washed
- 1 litre of water
- Sweetner to taste I used coconut nectar low GI, can use agave, maple syrup
Use a paring knife to make a slit in each guinep and remove from their skin.
Place the skinless guineps in a large bowl and pour the water onto the fruit.
Allow the fruit to soak for 10 minutes so the pulp lifts with ease.
Using clean hands start to rub the pulp of each guinep to release. Don't worry if there's still some pulp on the seed, the recipe will still work given the volume of guineps used.
Strain the juice in a jug then discard the left over seed or alternatively save and consume later.
Stir in the desired amount of sweetener, refrigerate and serve with ice.
- Guineps can be purchased from most ethnic markets or grocery stores
- If you live outside the Caribbean, guineps tend to be available more during the summer period.
- This recipe is suitable for a vegan, gluten free and paleo lifestyle
