Amla Limonade

Summer is yet to come here, but some healthy summer drinks are always welcome at home.Here we start again a week of blogging marathon with seasonal as theme. Obviously Amla aka gooseberries are seasonal here and they have so many health values.Indian gooseberries are eaten as raw, and also cooked in many other ways, the most famous is the amla pickles.

We get rarely amlas here and its quite expensive here when compared to India, obviously i get rarely and use them immediately.This time without any hesitation i tried making a summer drink with fresh amlas. This lemonade is definitely a thristy quencher, body cooler and definitely a healthy drink. If you get amlas abundantly dont forget to give a try to this refreshing lemonade.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#27.



3nos Gooseberries
1/2cup Sugar
2nos Limes
Water as per need
Ice cubes

Remove the seeds from the gooseberries and grind as fine paste with enough water.

Extract the juice from the grounded amla paste.

Meanwhile squeeze out the juice from the lime and mix the lime juice, amla juice together in a vessel.

Add sugar and enough water to the juice.

Add icecubes and serve immediately.
