Kharbuja juice recipe - Muskmelon juice - Cantaloupe juice

Kharbuja juice  recipe - Chilled  muskmelon juice with a splatter of lime is the perfect refreshing drink to enjoy on a hot summer day. On hot summer days, we generally experience the feeling of dehydration and thirst due to over sweating . Musk melon juice prevents these problems. It cools the stomach and comforts the throat. Though its raining here, the atmosphere is still warm and I felt like having some sumptuous fruit juice. Therefore, I thought of muskmelon which is readily available.

Fruits are an essential part of our daily diet. They are really good to provide the required amount of vitamins and minerals. Muskmelons are low in calories, so weight watchers may eat this fruit regularly. It is  rich sources of dietary fibers and helpful in soothing the acidity and also keeps the stomach cool. Muskmelon has an abundant supply of potassium which helps to control blood pressure. It is a good source of antioxidants. It contains an excellent amount of  beta-carotene, potassium, vitamin A and C.

I have added lemon juice and sugar to the juice. Both are required to add an extra  taste to the juice. Well ripened muskmelon is more sweeter than the unripened melon. When you buy the muskmelon, make sure to buy  the  heavy weighing, oval shaped light golden colour  muskmelon. They have more succulent flesh and sweeter taste as compared to round musk melon which is less sweet. You can also make fresh fruit juice with watermelon, mango, strawberry, litchi, green grapes and black grapes. Besides the juice, muskmelon can be used for the preparation of delicious dessert like rasayana, kheer and payasa .
