The summer season is almost coming to an end; meaning it’s time to make the most of the seasonal fruit we have. Mango, watermelon, lychee, muskmelon and more – summer brings a lot of sweet, juicy and extremely moisturizing fruits that leave us wanting more. Besides, these fruits are also super versatile – you can make juice, smoothie, dessert and more from the summer fruits. And if you’re like us, you’ve already included them in your daily diet. But trust us, there’s no end to this list of summer fruit-based recipes. In fact, we feel that the more you explore, the more you’ll come across unique ways to consume these treats. One such perfect example is the recipe we tried recently. It’s called kharbooja cooler.
Kharbooja (or muskmelon) is one of the most popular fruits we get in summer. It is healthy, tasty and gives you a good amount of water. In addition, it is low in calories, making the fruit ideal for daily consumption (and of course also for weight loss!). We love chilled, crunchy musk melon just the way it is, but did you know you can make yummy coolers out of it too?! Famous chef Sanjeev Kapoor shared such a musk melon cooler recipe with the goodness of cucumber and lemon in his latest Instagram post. Sounds oh so comforting; is it not? So what are you waiting for? Grab a sweet melon and make this tasty drink for yourself. Let’s take a look at the recipe.
