Agua de guayaba recipe

Translating to ‘guava water’, agua de guayaba is a Mexican drink with three simple ingredients - guava, sugar and water. This recipe from Maricruz Avalos Kitchen couldn’t be easier to make.

The best part about this recipe? Other than chopping the flower-end off the guava, there’s very little waste since we add whole fruit to the blender - peel, seeds, and all!

The result is a sweet, refreshing drink with gorgeous tropical flavours that’s packed with vitamin C. Yum!


Prep time: 10 minutes

Serves: 10 people


10 guavas

150g sugar

3 litres water


  1. Rinse the guavas under cold water.

  2. Cut off the end where the flower was attached, then slice each fruit in half.

  3. Add all the fruits to a blender with the sugar and 450ml of water.

  4. Blend until it looks like a purée.

  5. Use a sieve to strain the mixture into a large serving jug.

  6. Add the rest of the water, stir well and add any extra sugar, if needed.

  7. Serve with ice.
