mint juice, pudina juice

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 shrub

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.

a few health benefits of mint juice

  • 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 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 🙂

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Hey…surely refreshing drink for summers, I also like mint leaves a lot and use them in my routine cooking, I liked the mint leaves pic.

  12. 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.
