Since the juice is made from the fresh mint leaves, I have decided to call this excellent summer cooler, Mint juice. 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 recipes with mint leaves like Pudina chaas, Watermelon mint juice. I also make Mint tea every day, 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 every day 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.

  • It cures morning sickness and nausea.

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 a 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.

Also since we are talking about mint… Last but not the least… Mint is good for the skin too and will give your skin a lovely glow and radiance 🙂
