Growing up under the shade of the guava tree that leaned over our terrace is a vivid memory. With abundant tiny red-fleshed guavas, that tree was home to so many bats, ants and birds. It probably kept me occupied for all the hours I pretended to do some deep studies. That tree probably knows most of our childhood secrets and gossips as well coz right under the tree was the safe spot for Shobha and me to share, giggle and grow up together. So the guavas sealed the deal to be a part of my life and I am happy it did.
Fresh guava recipes.
As the chaats took over our tastebuds, the red-fleshed guavas with pomegranate were a beautiful chaat mix. Here is the link to Amrood ki chaat. The white fleshed guvavs are sweeter and more soft when fully ripe.
Whatever the colour you try, the familiar feeling of the juice rich in VitC could not be superseded.the pesky seeds are the only ones that make the eating difficult. The simple juice was also the best way to get rid of the pesky seeds. Blend it with some mint and you have a fantastic guava fresca mocktail in minutes. That’s exactly what we have done with these fresh guavas.
Wait no more, have the guava fresca, kick off the work shoes and call it a day!!

Wow, what a refreshing and delicious drink made with guava. Looks perfect for the hot summer weather.
i too have lot of memories associated with guava tree, My uncle had 2-3 tress at his place. My cousins and I have wonderful stories revolving around the trees from our childhood. We always enjoyed the chaat. This time I tried this fresca and was wondering I didn’t think of it before.
Amongst all the fruit drinks, my family loves guava the most. But don’t understand why we used to buy it from the market, when it can easily be made at home. Now onwards, no readymade guava juice. Thanks for sharing.
Simple, flavorful, refreshing and nutritious. Like this homemade fresh guava fresca with mint.Growing up, we too had a guava tree but the white variety. We would pluck the ripe ones and sink our teeth into it, and hear my grandmother screaming at us “wash them before eating”.
