Refreshing Soursop Juice Recipe

Learn how to make soursop juice from scratch with this simple recipe. Made with just lime juice and soursop, you will be surprised how easy it is to make. Soursop juice tastes great, but this refreshing drink is also very healthy.

Soursop juice recipe

Soursop juice Jamaican style

Jamaicans have two ways of making soursop juice. One sweeten with milk and spices, and the other with lime and sugar, which I will share in this post.

Both style taste great. If you like milk base drinks, try this soursop recipe, and you can add rum or Guinness/Dragon stout to make a punch.

For a refreshing drink, make the soursop juice with line juice and sweeten it with sugar or honey, as the recipe below shows.

How to choose the soursop

Choosing the right soursop for juicing may be difficult if you are unfamiliar with the fruit. The riper the soursop, the better it is for juicing. However, over-ripe soursop may have gone bad, giving the juice a tangy taste.

Soursop juice with lime

If the soursop skin is green and shiny and the spikes don’t break easily, the fruit isn’t ripe enough for juicing. Leave for a few more days until the soursop becomes softer to the touch.

A soft soursop with many dark-brown spots may be too over-ripe and starting to rot. If your finger goes through the fruit when you test its softness, it may have gone bad.

Additionally, a dark-green soursop with spikes close together indicated a young fruit, which won’t ever ripe, so leave it on the tree or in the store.

Soursop juice ingredients

For this soursop juice recipe you only need four simple ingredients.

Soursop juice ingredients
  • Soursop: Only a ripe soursop work for this recipe. The riper the soursop, the sweeter and juicer it is, so choose a riper soursop.
  • Lime juice: Since lime grows more widely in Jamaica, it is our first choice. However, I am sure lemon can use for this recipe. But, the slight bitterness of lime juice gives the juice its unique taste.
  • Sugar: Though I used brown sugar, it doesn’t matter whether you use brown or granulated sugar. Honey is also ok if you wish to use it.
  • Water: We all have water.

How to make soursop juice with lime

  1. Prepare soursop: Wash, peel and remove the soursop core. If you have a nice ripe soursop, it would easily peel with the hands.
  2. Extract juice: Place the soursop pulp in a large bowl and add water. Squeeze with your hands or mash with a masher to extract the juice.
  3. Separate juice: Strain to separate the juice from the soursop pulp. You can use a sieve or a cheesecloth. Cheesecloth may be tidier.
  4. Sweeten: Add lime juice and sweeten it with sugar or honey. Put to chill or serve over ice.

Other ways to make the juice

A blender can also use to make the soursop juice. But soursop juice made with a blender has a thicker texture-more like a smoothie than juice.

There are two ways to the process. You can peel the soursop, remove the seed, add the pulp and the core to the blender with a bit of water and blend until smooth. You may or may not stain.

The other way is to peel the soursop and remove the core. Add the pulp to the blender with a bit of water and pulse. Strain and sweeten.

Soursop juice benefits

Soursop has many health benefits and has become a superfood in recent years.

The soursop fruit is an excellent antioxidant, vitamin C and fibre. Its anti-viral properties help to boost the immune system.s

Over the last few years, there have been claims it treats cancer, but no studies prove this

If that’s not enough to convince you to try this Soursop juice recipe, I should mention that this drink taste so good.

  • 880 g (1.94 lb) ripe soursop
  • 1 tsp lime juice see notes
  • 591.47 ml (2.5 cups) water Add more water for thinker drink, see notes
  • 35 g (1.23 oz) sugar see notes


  • Wash, peel and remove the core of the soursop.
  • Place the pulp in a large bowl and add the water.
  • Squeeze or mash the soursop pulp to extract the juice.
  • Strain to separate the juice from the soursop pulp.
  • Add the lime juice and sweeten to taste.


  • The amount of water this recipe uses is just enough to make a rich, slightly thick soursop drink. If you water thinker juice, use a bit more water.
  • The teaspoon of lime juice only gives the drink a hint of lime taste. I wouldn’t say I like the lime overpowering the soursop. If you’d like more lime flavour add a bit more juice.
  • You may want to add a bit more sugar if you like your drink sweet.
