Recipe Notes

Benefits of each ingredient :
Oranges are one of the best and cheapest sources of Vitamin C. Human bodies, unlike many other animals, do not manufacture Vitamin C, so a human needs vitamin C in their diet regularly. (Vitamin C helps the body to grow, to heal wounds and fight infection.) Oranges are also a very good source of dietary fibre.
Bananas are an excellent source of Vitamin B6 and contain moderate amounts of vitamin C, manganese and dietary fibre.
Musk and cantaloupe melons provide loads of nutrition with less calories and are an excellent source of Vitamin Aand C.
So we get a power packed Vitamin C booster which will keep us on our toes the whole day and be nutritious as well!There is honey included in the recipe which is far more better than normal refined sugar.However you can suit your taste and if all fruits are sweet not add any sweetener at all!
Do not throw away the stalks when you use Coriander Leaves.Use them in this delicious drink and also for soups and stocks.

I am a passionate foodie who loves to cook, serve and love to see people relishing my creations. Since the time I was small I used to wonder about the 'how' of things in the kitchen.

Then when I finally ventured as an unprofessional kitchen helper for my late grand-mother (a par excellent cook in her own generation) I was fascinated by the amount of stuff you could do to a simple milk and rice to form a most yummy pudding.

Here I am sharing my recipes with a will to learn from some and educate others as well!
