 Musk melon juice recipe
Musk melon also known as Cantaloupe/Honey dew/Mash melon in English, Kirni pazham/ muzham 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 you make the juice to cut down calories. If you feel the sweetness of muzham pazham is sufficient enough, you can completely skip adding sugar OR replace with jaggery / honey. Do try this yummy & healthy summer drink recipe. U’ll feel refreshing.
