to beat the heat in the summers here’s watermelon orange juice. most of us know that cold drinks and artificially flavored juices are not good for health. but still most of us end up drinking them. i will not blame us for this because we are so much conditioned by advertisements and celebrities endorsing for these brands that we think it is really cool to drink soft drinks and artificially flavored juices.
however, what is really cool in attitude as well for the body are drinking drinks made from fresh fruits like - kokum sherbet, shikanji (sweet lemonade), sweet lime juice, musk melon juice, mint juice, aam ka panna and watermelon juice. the best option on a hot summer day could be coconut water. i think 99% of the blog readers will agree that no drink can beat coconut water on a hot day.
in this post, i am bringing a refreshing combination of watermelon and orange in one juice topped with mint leaves. adding mint leaves is optional but it adds good taste & flavor and they also are cooling for our body. this juice really tastes good and quickly recharges your body. one of the best juice if you have come home after facing hot sun for a long time.
