Day by day its being hot in Chennai and we long to quench our thirst with some juices.Due to adulteration in ready made juices i prefer homemade juices now a days.My son is a great fan of a branded pomegranate juice.Whenever we go for supermarket he use to pick few tetra pack for him.One day i made him fresh juice of it with my newly bought hand blender and he relished it well saying it taste soo good then store brought.From then he use to ask for this juice frequently.Its soo simple and taste awesome.I just added few mint leaves for extra freshness omit it if you don't prefer.
Makes: 2 cups
- Pomegranate fruit -3
- Mint leaves- 3 r 4
- Lemon juice 1 tsp
- sugar-1 r2 tsp( optional)
1.cut the fruit in to two and remove the seeds by tapping the half fruit over a plate with a big ladle.This way the seeds easily falls down in the plate.
2.In a blender/mixer add pomegranate seeds,mint leaves,sugar( if adding) and lemon juice.Blend it well.
3.Pour the mixture through a sieve and press with a spoon for the juice to release further.You can even add 1\2 cup water again to it.
Pour it in to glass and serve.
