Refreshing Summer Drinks | Special Desi Recipes

Refreshing Summer Drinks - With detailed photo and video recipes. Summer is the best time to load up on many refreshing beverages that not only beat the scorching heat and reduces our thirst but also rejuvenate the body instantly. check out the recipe below for fresh summer drinks packed with fresh fruits and herbs along with spices that would keep our bodies in balance.


Summer is hot and we need to hydrate ourselves with drinks. It also means a happy time with good sunshine. Enjoy the happy time with refreshing, healthy, and chilled drinks to beat this hot sun. Drinks not only mean cool drinks, but we also need to have water-related fruits or vegetables to hydrate. In this recipe, I used mint-based drinks as the mint provides a refreshing, burst of flavor and also acts as a good relaxant.


Mint leaves help for digestion and soothes the stomach instantly, and it also does wonder about stomach-related problems. It is also beneficial for patients suffering from IBS ( Irritable Bowel Syndrome ). It helps the muscles in the stomach relax and promotes overall digestion.

And the use of ginger in the drinks helps to improve stomach performance and digestion. Ginger helps to treat common digestive troubles like bloating, indigestion, etc. Ginger in any form is useful for the body and mind. It relieves stress and protects skin against infections.

In mint- ginger lemonade I used sabja seeds. Sabja seeds are a good source of minerals and an instant coolant. Sabja seeds are most nutritious when soaked in water and consumed. They begin to swell as soon as it touches the water, with a translucent white film coating each black seeds. and they become twice their size.

Sabja seeds had plenty of benefits for health and as well as for the body. They are great as a garnish for drinks, desserts, or even with plain water. These are used for weight loss recipes. Sabja seeds are also considered to be good for type 2 diabetics as it is known to keep a check on blood sugar levels.

I used these sabja seeds in mint- ginger lemon juice.
