Pomegranate Juice....Valentine's Day Special !!

It is Valentine's Day Today, suppose to be the day for celebrating love, though personally I don't think there is the need for a day to celebrate LOVE :).....But I am sure that the Card manufacturers & the gift idea makers will never agree with that.....!! 
( Also let us not forget to remember St. Valentine on this day, who was martyred for helping the young lovers ).

A small gift idea for your loved ones, that is packed with Loads of health benefits is what  Panchamrutham has to offer for the V day.....!!!




Pomegranates are a kind of seasonal fruits originated mainly from the Middle East and Asia. Here is a short list of the health benefits of the juice made from this wonder fruit, a good reason to go for it.
  • Promotes a healthy heart health and improves blood circulation
  • Contains three times the antioxidants of wine or green tea
  • Keeps your arteries clean and soft helps reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke
  • Lower the levels of bad cholesterol and raise your good cholesterol levels
  • Prevent breast and skin cancer, and also helps with prostate cancer in men.
  • Reduce the effects of aging and prevent Alzheimer’s. 
  • Prevent cartilage damage and protect babies from brain damage during birth. 
  • Helps to prevent dental plaque ( source ).
So ready to have this healthy, tasty & colorful drink ?? 
Here goes the recipe,  nothing much to write as a recipe though..


Ingredients
  1. Pomegranate       - 1 large (Remove the skin with a knife or scraper and cut it lengthwise, open it up and take out the seeds...Thats the easy way of getting the seeds without losing much of the juicy part)
  2. Sugar                  - 2 tsps ( avoid this if you like to get the genuine taste of it)
  3. Water                 - 1 cup
Preparation
  • Grind the ingredients 1 & 2 in a mixer ( Use the whipping mode without getting the seeds grinded)
  • Dilute with water as per your required concentration for the drink.
  • Strain it using a strainer and serve.
  • Keep closed in refrigerator if you want to have it chilled.
Instead of a heart shaped gift, here is a  juice that gifts you a healthy heart !!

Have a Great Valentine's Day ...Enjoy !!!!!!!!
