The love for Guava our family has is immense. We can eat it just like that or dip in a mixture of salt and chilly powder or in a mixture of salt and pepper powder and eat it. The best way to eat it is to wash it thoroughly and bite it and eat the whole. And here comes some one in the family who loves to take any fruit in the form of juice rather than in the form of fruit itself. And so here it comes as Guava delight for my son to relish it. 

Guava - 2 nos
Sugar - 8 tbsp
Water - 4 cups
Ice Cubes a few

Cut the Guava in two halves. Scoop out the seeds and grind them to a paste. But it is better to grind and have the juice with the seeds.  Add 2 cups of water and grind again and drain so that if there are
any seeds remaining, it will also be removed. 

Add sugar and grind again. Add remaining water and refrigerate it. Serve chilled. Before serving add ice cubes. 

Adding a few fresh mint leaves on top while chilling the drink, will enhance the taste. 
Add a pinch of salt, 2 tbsp of sugar and 1/2 tsp of pepper to the juice will enhance the taste.
