Rambutan & Tender Coconut Juice with Basil Seeds

Rambutan is a tropical fruit, named after the Malay word for 'hair', this fruit is from Southeast Asia though they grows all over the world now.Rambutan have an outer skin with soft yellowish and neon green prickly pokers all around the outer skin. Their flesh is white with a big seed in the middle and they have a sweet creamy rich flowery taste which is quite refreshing.Rambutan is highly rich in iron and helps a lot to less the body fat cotent as this fruit is high in fiber content.This fruit helps a lot for strengthening our bones as well. While tender coconut is a natural source of minerals and vitamins, their juice is excellent to keep the body cool. Rich in protein, their water are served fresh, chilled or packed. Often sold by street vendors, i simply love this tender coconut water especially while the weather is super hot outside, its a common summer special drink in India.

rambutan & tender coconut juice

Since both rambutan and tender coconut have body cooling effect, i couldnt resist to blend them both together to make a Summer cooler. Very easy to make, this juice makes a super refreshing drink while the weather is too hot outside. I didnt forget to add some soaked sabja seeds aka basil seeds to make this healthy and refreshing juice more interesting. Obviously these three together makes an excellent summer cooler to enjoy without any fuss. And this extremely refreshing juice is going to this week's blogging marathon as am running this week's blogging marathon with Kid's delight-Summer coolers as this week's theme.Sending to Kid's delight- Summer Coolers guest hosted by PJ, an event by Srivalli.
