I bought the soursop (photo above) ,Anona muricata or graviola in some countries, from the market yesterday, but I could not decide what to do with it.It is called "guyabano" in the Philippines, with smooth, leathery skin with little spines. It is tasking to remove the seeds and turn it into a smoothie. Am so tired from other works so I think I'll just slice and have my family eat it as it is. Sometimes I'm too lazy preparing some food when am not in the mood. Do you feel the same sometimes?

@ilocosboy no, that's why there is a scientific name so everyone can recognize it.

That's a "guyabano" we use to have 3 trees here in the house, i did not know it had lots of health benefits and it's quite expensive cause it only sometimes falls on our roof. The most inexpensive way to extract the juice and get rid of the seed is to press the meat using a cheese cloth.

Yes, it could be squeezed that way, but will the fibers be left in the cheesecloth? When am not too lazy to remove the seeds, I do it manually using two forks.

@acelawrites that's the down side the fibers are removed, another way is remove the seeds as you do using a fork and putting the meat on a processor while adding water based on your taste and preference

@acelawrites I like eating soursop but it's very expensive here. I only recently knew about its health benefits as it's loaded with vitamins and minerals. Normally I eat it plain. I think I should try a smoothie version.

It is always available in the Philippines. Yes, so many people say it is anti-cancer and other diseases; good antioxidant; so they also use its leaves as tea. You will like the smoothie version though I don't want to add sugar into it.

I have read online that besides a lot of vitamins and minerals, guyabano is also an anti cancer food.

Me, preparing food, is a rare occurrence. 1 our of 100. So that means I'm always lazy or just don't have the time to. And I love eating soursop. I enjoy eating it as it is and not as a smoothie or a juice.

I also thought of that, because adding milk or sugar mean additional calories, so it is better to eat it plain.

It tastes something sour and sweet; has white flesh full of fibers and juice and is very nutritious. It is called guyabano in the Philippines,

@crystalvisions maybe you can find it in an Asian shop there. I have not seen one in the Asian shop in Germany where we always buy Asian food and rice.

I can't count how many times I've eaten ingredients because we couldn't or wouldn't take the time to prepare something.

You might be too busy to prepare food. But if one have much time, it is enjoyable too to cook.

I don't prepare them. I buy mine in the canteen downstairs. It has never been my interest to prepare or cook food.

Yes, there are times that we are too lazy doing simple things and we leave as it is or like you, when you feel lazy in making smoothie soursop then you just slice it and eat it as it is, he, he.

Yummy! I love eating guyabano. I just cut it and eat the content excluding the seeds. Now you reminded me that I have bought one in the open air market yesterday. It is not ripe, yet.
