mint juice or pudina sherbet recipe, how to make mint juice recipe

mint-juice

well, i don’t know what to call this drink…mint sherbet, mint panna or mint juice.

since the juice is made from the fresh mint leaves, i have decided to call this excellent summer cooler, mint juice.

this drink recipe was shared with us at a gathering by a friend’s mom. it is a super cooling drink and you will love it if you love mint.

i have so much of mint growing in my balcony garden. i do make a lot of mint chutneymint coriander chutney and also make mint chai everyday, plus also put a lot of mint in salads and rice dishes.

mint is one herb that grows easily. it is very easy to plant and you don’t need special seeds for it.

when you buy mint next time, after taking the leaves, preserve the stems which have roots on it.

in a pot with mud, push the mint stems with the roots inside the soil. water and wait. water everyday as it is very hot now. after some days you will see small tiny mint leaves appearing from the stems. soon they will start to flourish.

whenever you want any mint, just remove the leaves or cut the stem. you don’t have to remove the whole plant from the mud like we do for coriander or other herbs. just cut the required quantity of stem. the plant will continue to grow.

a few health benefits of mint:

  • mint is good for digestion.
  • it cures morning sickness and nausea.
  • it also detoxifies the body
  • mint is a good source of vitamin C, B complex vitamins and minerals like calcium, phosphorous, zinc and copper.
  • mint also has antiseptic and cleansing properties.

this mint juice also has spice powders like cumin powder which again is good for digestion plus black salt which is again good for digestion. lemon juice is added to preserve the green color of the mint.

pudina panna or mint juice

mint juice is a great detoxification drink if you are on a detox diet.

i have used jaggery to make the mint juice, hence i did not have the beautiful green color. but if you make it with sugar you will have a lovely green color drink.

a simple, healthy and refreshing drink for the summers… mint juice

    Surely, Mint leaves goes well with many preparations and its aromatic fragrance enhances the taste and flavour to a great extent. It has also many medicinal value and is supposed to enhance the digestive capacity of the lever. It’s a coolant too and your recipefor a Mint sherbath would go a long way to beat the summer heat.

    This sounds delicious. I grow mint, but I can’t grow enough so that I can eat it as often as I’d like — I’d need a whole row of pots and a sunnier climate.

  6. says

    That was one impressive interview! It truly reflects your personality, which actually caught my attention before your recipes.

    Your mint juice is something I want to try soon. I have mint growing in my pots like weeds. I actually planted the stems even without roots. They had withered away in winter and came back to life in Spring.
