Use as much skin infusion as required, add according to your taste, a combination of the following:

  • Sugar syrup or stevia or honey or coconut sugar, to balance the sweet/astringent taste.
  • Also add mint, fresh sliced or grated ginger, lemon slices or mineral water.

Drink through the day. It is a good accompaniment to spicy food.

Note: In Bolivia this drink is considered a hunger suppressant. According to recent studies of skin and flesh at the University of Western Sydney (M. Wu and P. O’Doherty) not only is the pulp and skin very low in sugars but the skin is also rich in hydroxicidtrates, betacarotene, arginine and alanine and could aid weight loss by preventing fat building up in cells.
