Past 2-3 months due to increase in pollution, a cool and green rich place like Banglaore boiled to its extreme. With the mercury levels kept on increasing, leaving behind a hot and humid climate, a cool and refreshing juice is the best way to keep the energy levels boosted. Juices are more adorable in summers. Most of the times juices are most convenient way to indulge with fruits. Fresh homemade juices are nutritious and can play an important role in a healthy diet. Juices are fat-free, full with nutrients and rich with vitamins. They also carry minerals and phytonutrients.
A glass of simple, fresh and homemade juice is always a better choice than a soft drink. Three juices which are pretty much regular at my home are Mosambi, Watermelon and Muskmelon. These three tastes good when they are eaten raw or made into a juice. Most of the times, I just blend fruit pieces and water, skip adding sugar to get the complete goodness of the fruit. A cool and refreshing glass of fresh and homemade fruit juice is comforting at anytime of the day. Just a little effort in blending and sieving, you get a gorgeous glass of fresh juice. Drink fresh…Be fresh….. is the motto….
Melons are good source of potassium and vitamin C. They are fat free and cholesterol free. Low in calories and high in water. A perfect way to indulge with them is by eating raw or by blending into juice. So here is a duo juice for you…..The pretty gorgeous glasses you see in the pictures were gifted by Valarmathi on my birthday.
FOR WATERMELON JUICE:
Blend a cup of watermelon pieces along with water until smooth. Strain and serve chilled. Last but not least add your ‘love’ to make the juice ‘YUMMY’.
FOR MUSKMELON JUICE:
Blend a cup of muskmelon pieces along with water until smooth. Strain and serve chilled. Last but not least add your ‘love’ to make the juice ‘YUMMY’.
This duo melon juice(s) are going to participate in Monthly Mingle-Marvelous Melons hosted by Chew On That. Montly Mingle is brainchild of Meeta of What’s For Lunch Honey?
NOTE: Peel the skin, deseed and cut into 1 inch long pieces. Then put them in a blender. Adding sugar/honey is optional.
