Guava & Grape Slushy

  •  Point One: This week is Allergy Awareness week
  • Point Two: May is also the “G & H” challenge for the Eat A to Z Healthy Recipe Challenge.  Something I recently stumbled upon & thought I’d try to participate in. Here is a link to the Eat A to Z Healthy Recipe Challenge pinterest board (for more inspiration).
  • Point Three: Winter is on our door step here in Australia and it’s time to boost your Vitamin C intake.  This claim is made despite the beautiful t-shirt weather we experienced here in Sydney today.

So, to acknowledge all three points above, I came up with a fun, new (allergy free) drink for our afternoon tea today – a Guava & Grape Slushy.  I loved that this drink (with a small pepita & cranberry bar) was enough for us to be sustained during the witching 2-hours before dinner.  (Please see my post about afternoon snacks for more ideas about how to cure 3:30-itis without spoiling dinner).

Why Guava?  
In 100g of guava there is 228.3mg of Vitamin C which is about 4 times the amount found in Oranges!  
Guava also contains a relatively high antioxidant value compared to other plant foods.
