Not only are guavas good for you, but they're also incredibly fragrant. As soon as you leave them on your kitchen counter, your whole house starts to smell like guavas. Guavas are the best all-natural air freshener out there. And in case I haven't mentioned it, guavas are delicious and sweet, as is this Guava Agua Fresca.
Agua de Guayaba
- 8 fresh guavas, cut in quarters
- 8 cups water
- 1 cinnamon stick
- Granulated sugar (about 1/2 to 3/4 cup)
Puree the guavas and cinnamon stick with 3 to 4 cups of water until smooth. Strain puree into a 2-quart pitcher. Pour in the remaining water; sweeten with granulated sugar to taste. Stir to dissolve sugar completely. Serve with ice. Enjoy!
