Watermelon Plum Juice
YES !! Summer is getting hotter as we are entering the month of May but so are my summer recipes!
A Fruit that everyone loves to eat in Summers is the WATERMELON. The juice is a favourite with almost everyone as it immediately provides relief from the sweltering heat thirst. In Mumbai, we have Fruit Juice vendors selling watermelon juices in plenty.
At a lot of places, we get to see stacks of watermelons by the roadside, which is a lovely sight. In fact, it is Mumbai’s most loved fruit.
WATERMELON is a fruit high on its benefits & it has an additional property of very low calorie which is why it is a fave for most Women !! But on a more serious note, Watermelons are rich in amino acids which helps circulation.
Drinking watermelon juice before a workout helps reduce muscle soreness, vitamin A in the juice helps to moisturize the skin, Fiber content in the fruit is great for digestive tract & it is a great antioxidant.
But having plain watermelon juice every day could get a little boring, so I thought of mixing plum juice with the melon juice & check the taste.
PLUMS are available for a very short time in the summer & I simply love this fruit. The tangy taste of plums added a kind of naughtiness to my simple Watermelon juice, 😃😃!!
Plums have their own advantages like being a great immunity booster as well as aids in reducing the blood sugar.
So coming back to my naughty juice, when I combined the two juices, the combination just ROCKED! But it needed some zeal, so I thought of adding some rock salt & cumin powder.
It was soo good & suddenly I thought of flavouring it with the Indian favourite syrup KALA KHATTA !! This was just what was needed, suddenly everyone in the house wanted more of it & so I knew it was just the Perfect Summer Drink !!
