What Is a Guyabano?
Guyabano, or soursop, is a common fruit in Asia. It has green spiky skin and white flesh with black seeds. This sweet and tangy fruit is usually served as a juice or a shake. In order to make your shake extra sweet and creamy, you may add a little bit of sugar and milk in it.

Tips and Techniques
- For a sweeter shake, add sugar or artificial sweetener.
- For a healthier sweet option, use honey.
- For a creamier texture, add a small amount of milk.
- To make it extra sweet and creamy, use condensed milk.
