About Barley Muskmelon Summer Cooler

Barley grain has amazing cooling effects on our bodily health. Muskmelon being a high water content fruit and being rich in potassium helps to fight fatigue. Both these ingredients play a vital role in keeping our body well hydrated.
Further I have included palm sugar as the sweetener which is highly rich in vitamins and minerals. So, Why not make healthy cooler and beat the heat during summer?
