Pomegranate Juice and Magic Lamp!

I have recovered from the cold and cough that I was suffering from the last few days, and though it has started raining again, the humid atmosphere made me want to have a nice refreshing drink. I had gone out to buy fruits just yesterday and found really nice pomegranates. Picked two large ones, and decided to make a really nice drink.

I was inspired by Usha's watermelon and ginger combo at Samaikalam Vanga, and decided to use honey instead of sugar.



To make the Pomegranate Juice (serves two) you will need:

Pomegranate - 1 large - separate the red arils - as explained below:

"After opening the pomegranate by scoring it with a knife and breaking it open, the arils (seed casings) are separated from the peel and internal white pulp membranes. Separating the red arils is simplified by performing this task in a bowl of water, whereby arils sink and pulp floats. " - Wikipedia

Ginger - medium sized, peeled and cut - 1
Honey - 2 tsp
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Ice cubes - 5-6

Method:
  • Blend all the ingredients except ice cubes, strain well, and serve with the ice cubes


This drink goes to a lot of events:

Thanks for the post, you can add these healthy juices to maintain your good health. It is simply full of healthy nutrients, you can also take help from the Noni fruit extract so as to keep yourself healthy.

Erin said...

Even better diet and exercise steps have their limitations because your body starts to cease producing Human Growth Hormone on its own.

HGH is responsible for fat loss, building muscle mass, increased energy levels, a sharper memory, a boosted immune system, and more.

Since the natural production of HGH slows down with age, many men will reach for those supplements that claim the ability to help enhance HGH production. Not all of these releasers are all that reliable. Some are good and some are not so good.

In the human body, GABA acts as a neurotransmitter. There’s some research suggesting that GABA has mood elevating properties and a deficiency is linked to anxiety, chronic pains and mood disorders.
