Soursop Smoothie a Natural Cancer Fighter

My mother survived cancer a couple of years back and it was very a painful experience for her and the family. Recently when I was at a local vegetable fruit store "Kovai Pazhamudhir Nilayam" Anna Nagar Shanti Colony, I was amazed to see the soursop fruit being sold as a natural cancer fighting fruit. It was expensive sold at 350 rs per kg but having known what cancer can do to the human spirit prevention is always better than cure.

The mineral content and substance in soursop is 10,000 times stronger in slowing the growth of cancer cells compared with adiamycin and chemotheraphy.And unlike chemotheraphy soursop selectively hunts down bad cells and not harm healthy cells  

This fruit is very rich in fiber and has a distinct sourness and sweetness combined. You can have it as it is too and I ate half of the pulp directly. It tasted much better after I had freezed it.

Before you enjoy this fruit it is also important to realize how cancer cells grow in the human body as it will help us effective measure to prevent it

1. Sugar is a cancer-feeder.
By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells.. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal,Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Stevia which I had posted  earlier .

2. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily and deep breathing like kapalabhati popularized by baba ramdev help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cell.

3. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment 
Anger, unforgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to relax and enjoy life. Meditation is helpfull to de-stress.

Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in colour and contains only one mineral iodine. Table salt makes our  body  more acidic. A  better alternative would  be  himalayan salt

A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics,growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer. A vegetarian diet keeps the body more alkaline.

After reading about the benefits of soursop I recommend to make it part of your diet .

So here is the recipe

  • 1/2 cup soursop pulp
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1.5 tsp sugar or 1/4 tsp stevia
  • 7-8 ice cubes
  • 1/2 tsp pistachio for garnish
Cut into half and scoop the pulp out and and remove the seeds.

In a blender make a smoothie with all the above ingredients. Pour it in a serving glass and garnish with the pistachios and serve immediately.


1.Grinding the ice cubes with the soursop makes it a perfect chilled smoothie.

2. Soursop is best to select if it is turning lightly yellow and a little soft when pressed outside.

3. Adding nuts is optional however it gives a wonderful nutty texture to the smoothie

I shared this recipe with the Hearth & Soul blog hop

The name of the fruit is called Guanabana. I've recently just heard about this too. Here in California I've seen it in Mexican markets. Ive also found it at the Top Value market. Some places have it already frozen. I hope this helps! =)

Hi, even I agree that Soursop has various Medical and Health benefits. As more people are becoming aware of the health benefits of Soursop, the fruit sellers are taking advantage of them by selling the fruit at enormously high prices! But I bought Soursop Juice from SVA India(Mumbai) at a very economical cost, they are very friendly and reachable. You can also contact them on + (91)-(22)-22886789/98 if you are interested in buying the fruit/Juice/Tea/Leaves.

You can also buy it frozen at the Latin and Caribbean stores next to frozen mango and papaya.

Thank you so much for posting on soursop. I just bought two to give them a try at the recommendation of a friend, but I had no idea they were so good for us. (They are so alien-looking I'd never been brave enough to try them before.)

Thank you, also, for the reminders about why eating natural foods is so important for our health.
