Raw Cucumber seeds yogurt soup


Raw cucumber Soup

About:

This recipe is from my friend Nilima Rao, who is upcoming singer. Thank you dear for such a lovely and refreshing recipe just modified it to make a soup recipe using regular cucumber.

This is perfect for summer with a cool, refreshing and soothing soup with combination of yogurt, mint and ginger.

Health benefits:

Cucumber seeds are slightly diuretic, which helps promote urine flow and stimulates the kidneys to flush wastes and fatty deposits from the body. Diuretics can act to dehydrate the body, but cucumbers’ high moisture content makes this of no concern.

Cucumber seeds are also used holistically to treat tapeworm infestations and are reputed to have a regenerative effect on the skin.

So enjoy this soothing soup with bread

Papaya Peach and Lime Sorbet


Serbat

About:

This refreshing sorbet makes an elegant end to a summer meal. Scoops of papaya-peach sorbet and a zingy dose of freshly squeezed lime juice is packed with antioxidants.

Sorbet is the quintessential summer dessert: low in fat, icy, and refreshing, with a fresh fruit base instead of the heavier dairy of ice cream. And for this fabulous tropical-inspired recipe, you don’t even need an ice-cream maker!

Sorbet is a frozen confection similar to ice cream, but made without any dairy products. Instead, the dessert is made with sweet syrup made of sugar and water and flavoured with fruit juice or puree. The same method used to make ice cream is used to make sorbet. The syrup and fruit churns in a refrigerated machine that mixes air into the ingredients and forms fine ice crystals to make the sorbet smooth.

Yields: 4-6servings
Preparation time: 15minutes
Waiting time: 6 – 8 hrs
