Carrot Orange Juice

June 7, 2017 DrinksSummer Special  One comment

Fresh juices, ice creams & milkshakes are the need of the hour now. Especially in Chennai, the heat waves have not gone down yet. This Carrot Orange Juice is an easy and refreshing juice to beat the heat. Chotu is a big fan of orange juice. Any sort of fizzy/aerated drink is a big NO at home. Chotu does not like them either. Not much fancy ingredients are needed here. So enjoy this simple and refreshing drink. Check my other summer treats HERE!

Muskmelon Smoothie – Cantaloupe Smoothie

June 9, 2015 DrinksSummer Special  8 comments

Muskmelon or canataloupe or khirni pazham (in tamil) is a refreshing fruit, perfectly hydrating for the summer. I can have this as is, but Chotu is such a fussy eater especially when it comes to fruits. This Muskmelon Smoothie is yet another successful attempt 

I still remember those young days, when we used to dry the seeds in the sun and eat it. Due to less sunlight here, I just discarded them 

So here u go with a simple and truly exhilarating drink, and if u are a fussy person like Chotu this is for you
