MUSK MELON JUICE RECIPE|KIRNI PAZHAM JUICE-SUMMER DRINKS

 

Musk melon juice recipe

Musk melon also known as Cantaloupe/Honey dew/Mash melon in English,Kirni pazham in Tamil,Kekkarikke Hannu in Kannada and Kharbooja in Telugu and Hindi.It is low in calories and a best summer drink..

Last year, i posted musk melon @ Cantaloupe juice recipe from my Mil’s hands.This year, i tried on my own.Here in Bangalore,we get orange colored musk melon.I love that color a lot.As summer is almost in peak,we really feel like having a fresh fruit or juice/ice creams in the noon.So i am trying   lot of juice recipes and planning to share them in my space.

To start with,musk melon is one of the best coolants for summer and a great thirst quencher too.Its health benefits are innumerable.The biggest advantage is that it is low in calories,low in Saturated Fat and very low in Cholesterol.It is also a good source of Dietary Fiber, Niacin, Vitamin B6 and Folate,and a very good source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Potassium.It is good for asthma,diabetes,arthritis,High BP,heart disease and heat strokes.But the only bad thing is that a large portion of the calories in this food come from sugars.So its better to add less sugar while u make the juice to cut down calories.Do try this yummy & healthy summer drink recipe.U’ll feel refreshing Smile..
