Agua de Guayaba

Agua Fresca is a refreshing beverage traditionally served at lunch or dinner.  But did you know that Agua Fresca can also be served at breakfast?  Agua de Guayaba (Guava) is one Agua Fresca that is perfect for serving at breakfast.  And it's one I make often because guavas are available year round where I live.

Agua de Guayaba

  • Fresh Guavas, cut in halves 
  • 1 to 1-1/3 cups sugar

Fill a 6-cup blender cup with guava halves.  Add enough water to the blender cup to cover the guavas. 

Puree until smooth.

 Strain the guava puree into a 1 gallon pitcher.

Add sugar and enough water to fill the pitcher.  Stir well to dissolve the sugar.  Serve with or without ice.  Enjoy!!!



  1. Como extraño el agua de guayaba, en mi casa en México tenemos un huerto con muchos arboles frutales, así que no tenia ni que comprar para disfrutar de tan deliciosas frutas, me fascina la guayaba. Con esta receta me trajiste muy buenos recuerdos =)

  2. I can only find fresh guayaba for a limited period at our Mexican markets every year.  Hubby loves it, though...and we make this when we can get it.  Makes me wish I had a refreshing glass now!

    YUM! I just bought some guayabas at our local market and look forward to making agua de guayaba. This would be a GREAT paleta too. YUM!

  5. Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting, Maria!  I look forward to visiting your website. :)  

  6.  Ooohhh!  Paletas de Guayaba are so delicious and this recipe works really well for paletas.  Of course, when I'm making paletas, I don't strain the pulp or the seeds.  :)
