Soursop

Folks in Spanish-speaking islands call this guanabana. The fruit is oblong or slightly heart-shaped, its green skin is covered with spines and the white flesh inside is full of seeds. The best way to enjoy soursop is to first press the flesh through a sieve or through cheesecloth to extract the juice from the seeded pulp. Then mix with evaporated milk, water and sugar until the desired consistency and sweetness. Add a splash of rum, if desired. You can also use the soursop juice to make custard.

Calories in Fruit

One average soursop that measures seven to eight inches long and five to six inches in diameter contains between 400 and 450 calories. It’s rich in vitamin C and contains a fair amount of potassium, iron, magnesium and dietary fiber.
