Homemade Strawberry Guava Juice

This morning I woke up craving some strawberry guava juice. I didn’t have any guava’s so I decided to improvise. And to my surprise, it was a great success! I call it, Carlie’s Strawberry Guava-like Juice.

Here is what I used:

  • 2 Granny Smith apples cut and cored with skin on
  • 2 bananas
  • 4 clementines
  • 4-5 strawberries

Blend these ingredients in your blender {I used my Vitamix}.

Then pour into a mesh strainer.

Pour into a glass and enjoy!

    Refreshing I am sure, Thank you! I a very close to the purchase of a Vitamix. Is it a great as people say? And do you mind telling me which style you have and how you like that?

      Debra, I love our Vitamix for many different reasons. We used high end blenders in the past but they did not work well for making my flour blends. We have a son who has allergies to wheat and possibly gluten (still testing to determine) and I make all of my own flours. The Vitamix has made my life a breeze when it comes to this – totally fine and smooth every time in about 15 seconds flat! It makes restaurant quality items for us such as: fresh marinades, salsas, peanut butter, ice cream, smoothies (love the green ones), juices (we love organic apple juice see here: http://www.soyoucallyourselfahomeschooler.com/2012/03/26/homemade-organic-apple-juice-using-your-vitamix/), and even soups from start to finish. We have the 5200 and we use it EVERY day and really LOVE it.

        Thank you Carlie! That is the model I am thinking of, so I am saving up. I just didn’t know if I should get the cheaper two speed in case it is just okay or give it all up for the 5200. I trust your opinion and have heard a lot of great things about Vitamix in general, so I am likely to end up with the 5200 also. My son has food allergies too; milk, peanuts, treenuts, egg and also an intolerance to oat. Because of this I cook all the time, from scratch is the best way to avoid a problem. The Vitamix should help with that, and working in more vegetables through juices. As well I have an infant that needs soft foods and my food mill just doesn’t always cut it (I made a pun). I enjoy your posts! Love your style and taste! And I am glad I found you! :)

          Wow, Debra, our sons have similar allergies! Our 3-year-old is allergic to wheat, dairy, egg whites, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, and some other things too! I have seen an improvement in his condition over the last two years, BUT, it is still a lot of work, isn’t it? But ALL WORTH it. Our 5-year-old son is allergic to peanuts so having our youngest with so many allergies was a little shocking. Our daughter, myself, and husband do not have any food allergies – but we have enjoyed eating more healthy! Look forward to getting to know you! Glad you are HERE :)

            Oh yes, similar allergies! My daughter is 10 months and so far shows no signs of allergies although she also has never had any PN, TN, M, E or Oat and I am in no rush to feed her any. We do eat a lot better now that we must check every label and plan our meals better. I got the okay to get the blender and bought the 5200 Vitamix today, I am so excited!!! Thank you for the recommendation, and I will be making your guava juice in no time! ;) PS My favorite allergy blog is Onespot Allergy for current events and information.

    I want a Vitamix SO MUCH! Or at least a Kitchen Ninja – my ordinary blender leaves so much to be desired when it comes to juice drinks/smoothies…

    That looks so yummy!! My younger daughter and I love to make smoothies for breakfast–especially during the hot summers. I’ll have to try your recipe and see how we like it. We usually make ours with yogurt, a little bit of milk, strawberries, bananas, and sometimes a bit of fruit juice. Thanks for sharing!

      Hi Wendy! Yes, we do a variety of different smoothies but are really getting more into the raw/whole foods side of juicing. While I enjoy having the added ingredients at times, I now prefer just plain fruit for any juices :)
