Mint Juice


ImageThere’s no better way to cool off on a hot summer day with some fresh home made Mint juice. I grow plenty of fresh mint in my backyard and try to use in mint juice and mint – watermelon juice. Plus I throw in a host of other pro-digestive ingredients which makes this drink far more healthy than the sugary store bought juice or sodas!

Ingredients: Serves 2

Mint leaves – 1 small cup

Sugar – 2 tbsp or Jaggery 2″ cube

Salt- a pinch

Ginger – 1/2 tbsp shredded

Lemon Juice – 1 tbsp

Elaichi ( Cardamom powder ) – 1/4 tbsp optional

Grind the mint leaves into a paste using small amount of water. Filter the paste in order to get rid of the pulp. Then combine the rest of the ingredients, add more sugar or jaggery if needed. Set aside in a bowl. Seve after an hour of refrigeration.

The same juice can be made with Cilantroe- Mint combination also. A pinch of Jeera ( cumin ) powder  can also be added for additional taste!
