Recipe Corner: Massy's Virgin Guava BCAA Cocktail

Recipe by Cornelia Sabrina,  @Cornelia_Sabrina on IG

I am not sure how it is for you guys, but sometimes I just like to sit down with a fancy drink and relax. Personally I do not drink alcohol so all my cocktails are virgin and to stay on track with your fitness goals, I decided to give you a virgin cocktail to beat the heat. What's even better it is a BCAA cocktail that will also help your body recover and rebuild. 

When the TRU Guava BCAA first was released, Massy was so excited about it. Now every time I see Guava anywhere, it makes me think of her. So this recipe is in honor of her. This drink is the perfect balance between sweet and sour with a spicy kick, just like Massy sort of, hehe. 

Guavas are full of seeds, that's why you do not want to use a juicer unless you are ready to ruin it or it is specifically made to handle seeds like that. Mine is an Omega juicer and believe me, I tried. I ended up using my Vitamix blender and strain the liquid twice to remove all the seeds. This is a really important step and makes the end result so much more enjoyable. 

I added some water to mine to fill the Mason jar I used but feel free to use sparkling water. This is a perfect refresher for hot days or after a you crushed Monday ;)
