Soursop Smoothie

24 Flares 24 Flares ×

It’s officially hurricane season.  Yay!  Okay.  Not really.  The experts are predicting a quiet season with only 10 named storms. That being said, the first two named storms of the year developed before June 1st.  Not encouraging.  Couple that with the ‘hurricane crab’ invasion in Cayman Brac…

…and let’s just say I bought some extra supplies for this year.

A welcome distraction from my foreboding was the recent discovery of a soursop tree in my yard.  Excite!

Time to make some smoothies!

  1. Great write up! I will give you a site where I got real fruit on powder form, I mix it with milk and ice cream to go healthy. they have soursop, mango, papaya, berries, etc. A lot of fruits and veggies. Enjoy guys! http://www.freshlydried.com

  2. What does soursop taste like?

  3. In Asia, soursop (sometimes with squeeze of lime/lemon) is such a refreshing drink and it is widely available. But I don't really can find sousop here in the US.

  4. never tasted soursops before !!!!the smoothie looks n sounds very interesting !!!

  5. Unusual and refreshing – this looks great! I am intrigued my the interesting melange of fruits and flavors here…!

  6. I just checked my translator but I still don't know what it is in Japanese. I wonder how it tastes like. Hope hurricane season will be over soon. It reminds me of rainy season in Japan in June/July. It's not so fun having rain constantly. Enjoy your new discovered tree!

  7. Don't know what soursop is … Can you share more info?

  8. I so don't miss hurricane season from living in the South. I hope it's relatively calm this year, for your sake–and in the meantime, what a great-looking smoothie!

  9. I've never heard of a soursop?? Whats it taste like? It looks really cool 🙂 !

    Googling!

  10. I've never tried soursops – can't wait to try them!

  11. This looks so good! I have never heard of soursop before, but I am all for it!
    I posted your Swanky recipe today!

  12. It seems like the majority of the comments I have no idae what a soursop is either! Maybe it's a sign you should create a soursop farm? Either way, this looks delicious!

  13. In the Cayman Islands, we predict storms based on wildlife activity, not the National Weather Service.

  14. Interesting sounding smoothie!

  15. That's what those are called. I've seen them before but didn't know the name. How intriguing and exotic looking.

  16. This sounds like a fantastic drink for summer! I had soursop in a drink for the first time last year and still wasn't too sure exactly what it was, but I did enjoy the taste!

  17. I have no idea which language you are speaking. Never heard of that tree and I am not very plant-literate person. So if you are saying it is good, I take your word for it 🙂
    I dont like hurricane season. It is “thunderstorm” season here. My dog goes crazy and destroys rugs, towels, anything that can be ripped apart when thunderstorm hits. Hope yours behave better. If you have any tricks for calming them down, I will take it.

  18. In your yard!!!! I am so jealous!! Not even in Trinidad, did I have one in my yard. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE soursop. In NJ I have to settle for the frozen pulp from the hispanic store. But, beggers can't be choosers, right?!?
    Enjoy every drop of them.

  19. Add me to the list of soursop newbies and batten down the hatches!

  20. I've never tried soursop! Sounds interesting. Hope you make it through hurricane season intact!

  21. Hurricanes frighten me (as I sit in my living room while the tornado sirens go off..). And I have absolutely no idea what “soursop” is, but it looks delicious!

  22. Hi, Parsley Sage! Apparently, we (Oklahoma) skated through tornado season due to the Jet Stream being farther North. (Good for us, not so good for you…) Sorry to hear you're in the midst of hurricane season… but your smoothie looks “calming.” 🙂

  23. You are soooo lucky for having a soursop tree in your yard! I wish you had enough to ship one to me!

    I love the fragrant and the sweet and sour aste of it. I always try to get some when I’m in Vietnam. Before the can go in a smoothie I’d already ate them!

    Ps: when I get a smoothie I always ask them to use the pure fruit, no milk, only crushed ice and sourop! Can’t wait to have some.

  24. I don't think I've ever had a soursop before – sounds like an interesting smoothie! Stay safe =)

  25. Who knew that at 32 years old, there would still be fruits out there I never even heard of, much less tried?? Cool. Stay safe this hurricane season. Protect the soursops!

  26. Exotic fruits like this are hard to come by. In fact I saw some passion fruit that was hidden at the grocers under a big sign. Clearly it was way beyond ripeness! Soursop is something I have never tried, however it is pretty cool that you have a tree nearby. The grasshoppers have taken over our garden!
    Concerning the hurricane season, let's hope if there are any of those they stay over the ocean.

  27. I still remember the soursop tree in grandpa's garden. We used to have eat so many of these fruits. Now that my grandpa is not around, I buy them from the market which is quite reasonably priced.

    Seems like the weather over your side and here is totally different. We are having heatwave and its really killing us. This smoothie is perfect for us to cool down our systems and its really simple to make.

  28. Hurricanes? Hurricane crabs? Soursops? There is a lot about Cayman I need to learn. I don't know what a Soursop tree is but I want one.

  29. Mmmm love Soursop smoothies…what the heck is a smoothie 😉

  30. Soursop tree, fantastic! Love soursop! Soursop smoothie looks delicious!

  31. Never heard of this 🙁 Gosh you are so awesome. I seriously need to come visit!!!

  32. looks wonderful lovely for warm season

  33. this looks great hope the storms are ok 🙂

  34. I am clueless on soursop. I'm off to Google it.

    The smoothie looks really pretty though.

    I hope you get no damaging hurricanes!

  35. Love this photo adorable!

  36. Okay, I'm off to Google that. The smoothie looks fantastic!

  37. I have never even heard of a soursop before but thanks for introducing it to me – looks like it makes on hell of a smoothie 😀

    Cheers

  38. Wow – I'm going to have to come over to pick a few soursops 🙂

  39. I've never had a soursop but now I'm intrigued. I might just have to fly there and find out for myself. I may wait till after hurricane season though. Yikes. We don't get weather like that here. It would scare the heck out of me.

  40. Don't know what is soursop…but it looks really refreshing and good to me.

  41. This is a very educational post:) I learned all about hurricane crabs and had to read up on soursop. It sounds intriguing.

  42. What is soursop? A smoothie sounds really good, though 😉

  43. Was it sour? Was it soppy?
