SPB (Strawberry Pomegranate Basil) drink

Pomegranate Strawberry Juice3

About:

A refreshing smoothie that’ll hit on these hot summer days. Strawberry, Lemon and Pomegranate come together to make cooling down a breeze and oh so delicious with basil flavour.

I thought there really was no better way to kick off summer than with fresh homemade strawberry-pom basil drink.  it’s sweet, sour and so thirst quenching.

Health Benefits:

Holy basil (known as Tulsi) has been used for centuries in Ayurveda, a traditional Indian system of medicine, as a treatment for gastric, hepatic, respiratory and inflammatory disorders as well as a remedy for headache, fever, anxiety, convulsions, nausea and hypertension

Yields: 3-4
Preparation time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • Strawberry-400 gms
  • Pomegranate seeds – 1 cup
  • Basil/tulsi leaves-8-10
  • Fruit sugar/any sweetener-2-3 tbsp
  • Lemon juice- from half lemon

Procedure:

  • Wash and hull the strawberries.
  • Put hulled strawberries, Pomegranate seeds, Sweetener, Basil leaves, lemon juice in a blender/food processor and pulse until smooth. Adjust the thickness by adding some water and pulse again.
  • Strain the mixture through a sieve into a large bowl and stir thoroughly.
  • Serve immediately with some Ice or transfer it to a large bottle and refrigerate and serve chilled.
