Guava Shake






W
hen saw this recipe here, I wanted to try this and here I'm with this Guava shake. Before the recipe I want to share some information about this fruit.


Guavas are high in fiber.


Research at the US Dept. of Agriculture have found that guava may be among the fruits richest in antioxidants, suggesting that there may be significant health benefits for people who regularly include guava in their diets.


Guava is rich in vitamin A, B, C and is know to have more vitamin C than an orange.
Guava is also a good source of calcium, unusual for a fruit.

Guavas are cholesterol-free, saturated fat free and sodium-free, plus they are low in fat and in calories.




Ingredients
Guava - 1/2 can
Cold Milk - 1 1/2 cup
Cardamom powder - a pinch
Sugar - to taste
Method
I dint get the fresh guava so I've used the can. I bet fresh one will taste better. Chop the guava and blend in the blender with sugar and little milk till very smooth. Add more milk and whip. Serve chilled.
