Shake It Like Mango Shake

Today’s post is about a shake which everyone loves “Mango Shake”. Mango comes in our life usually by the last week of March, but the variety is available only by Mid-April. Season lasts up to the end of June & in certain areas, it lasts up to the first week of August. Some people love to eat mango just by slicing it, some like to suck on the mango and get their hands dirty while some people, like me like it whipped and topped up with cashew and raisins. As soon as the season hits I go crazy for the shake, and I make it by myself. It is a very easy job to go, and i will tell you step by step:

  1. Peel the Mango and slice it into small pieces.
  2. Add mango & 3 cups of milk into the mixer.
  3. Blend it to perfection.
  4. Add crushed ice and vanilla ice cream.
  5. Blend it again for 15-20 seconds.
  6. Add Cashew & Raisins on top
  7. Sip and Chill #beattheheat

Beat The Monday Heat

Delhi has always been way to hot. Now that the summers have arrived, there are certain things we all need to take care. Some people focus on their face, body, hair or may be their A/C. Focusing on one thing is not which will save one from the Delhi’s heat waves.

The most important thing is to keep yourself well hydrated & keep your stomach cool. If these 2 things are kept in mind and worked upon then your body will BEAT THE MONDAY HEAT. Have at least 6 to 7 ltrs of water every day, followed by Curd, Lassi or Fresh lime or Bael Juice.

Not many people know about BAEL JUICE and its significance. Bael, also known as bilwa is a vital tree in Indian culture which is mostly planted around temples. The fruit is hard, woody and smooth with sweet flesh inside that can be consumed fresh or dried. I daily have a glass to keep myself safe from dehydration. I recommend everyone of have one glass a day and you will feel the difference.

Benefits of Bael Juice:

  • Cures gastric ulcers
  • Reduces blood cholesterol levels
  • Keeps the stomach cool
  • It has antimicrobial properties
  • Reduces constipation
  • Beneficial for skin rash
  • Helps to control blood sugar levels
