Guava Smoothie Recipes and Nutrition

The guava is a small fruit that is oval in shape and usually yellow, maroon or green when ripe. The flavor of the guava is similar to the pear, and is slightly sweet.Guavas are a flavor accent that lends a tropical sweet-tart kick to a fruit or green smoothie.

Guava Nutrition and Health Benefits


Guavas are especially rich in vitamin C, with 1/2 cup of guava flesh containing up to 209% RDA. Guavas also provide a good source of vitamin A (as beta-carotene) as well as folate.

As for minerals, guavas are rich in copper and also contain potassium, manganese, magnesium and phosphorus.

Guavas are an especially rich source of antioxidants which may provide disease-protective health benefits.

While scientists have discovered compounds in the bark and leaves of guava plants that provide potential medical benefits, the fruit itself may contribute health protective benefits from the nutrition, fiber and antioxidant content – especially in those who consume guavas as part of a healthy and balance whole foods diet.

How To Use Guavas In A Green Smoothie


Making green smoothies out of guavas is a bit tricky since you must remove the seeds since they don’t blend well. Blending whole guavas in a blender, even a high-speed Vitamix, will leave lots of jagged, sharp-edged seed bits that are not pleasant to drink at all. These seeds are not easy to remove either, and often results in much of the guava being wasted.
But the outer, seedless edges of the fruit are very tasty and it’s definitely worth the effort.

Guava blends best with other tropical fruits like pineapple, coconut, mango, banana and citrus. Use mild-flavored, non-bitter greens like spinach and lettuce so that you don’t overpower the delicate guava flavor.
