AMLA GINGER LEMON AND HONEY DETOX / AMLA LEMON GINGER AND HONEY JUICE


Amla or Indian gooseberry is an excellent source of Vitamin C, high in fiber, low in calories. It helps in intestinal and liver disorders.
Ginger is an ingredient that has been used in traditional medicines since ages and is extensively used in Indian cooking everyday.
Lemon is another good source of Vitamin C and relieves oral dehydration. It is the most widely used citrus fruit all over the world.
Honey also has antiseptic and antibacterial properties and it is a healthy natural sweetener.

All these ingredients are mostly used and always available in our kitchens. A detox drink made with them is good for general health and cleansing the system specially when taken on empty stomach in the morning.

Ingredients:
Amlas / gooseberries .... 2 big or 3 small
Ginger (chopped)........... 1 tbsp
Lemon juice .................. 1 tbsp
Honey .......................... 2 or 3 tbsps
Salt ...........................  1/8 tsp
Roasted and ground cumin seeds .. 1/4 tsp
Water .............................. 2 cups

Method:
1. Wash the amlas well and cut into pieces.
2. Peel the ginger and cut into pieces.
3. Grind them in a mixer adding the water.
4. Strain the juice and mix honey, salt and roasted cumin powder.

Yield : 1 serving
Note: Serve immediately for best results as the Vitamin C is destroyed very fast on exposure to air and water.

  1. The drink looks amazing and I love the glass. I take ginger, honey and lemon juice drink but not tried with ambla. I like the taste of ambla so I am sure this one will also taste great. Plus it's healthy.
