Mint and Lemon Juice - A Green Cool Drink For The Summer

We have some mint / pudina plants in the back yard. Our helper often said she has seen some people drinking the juice of mint regularly and is there any benefit for this. Though I know mint has many health benefits we used it only while making biriyanis, or making chutneys / pudina chammanthi, or just added in raita. I think mint tea is popular worldwide. Mint is very good for stomach disorders. I have seen many use capsules contained pudina, but never thought of such a delicious drink until she says this. Also, have heard mint is good for treating pimple, for that the pulp of fresh leaves used. This juice should be taken fresh, otherwise it's color and taste will change a little.

Mint / pudina leaves 15
lemon juice 1 lemon
sugar approx. 4 Tbsp or as per taste
water 2 glasses

How to prepare
Wash and clean leaves very well.
Blend it very well with 1/2 glass water.
Strain it.
Add remaining water, lemon juice and sugar.
Mix well, serve immediately.
Hope you loved it! :)
