Ash Gourd Mint Juice

In my last post, I talked about raw ash gourd (kumbalanga/wax gourd/winter melon) being 96% water. That makes it an apt vegetable to juice. I have been trying all different combinations of juice with ash gourd in the mix, but here is the one which is a keeper. Ash gourd juice sweetened slightly with apple and refreshingly flavored with fresh mint. 




Ingredients:

  • Ash Gourd - 2 cups (cubes)
  • Apple - 1 or 1/2 (for sweetening)
  • Mint - 3-4 stems
  • Lemon -1
  • Himalayan pink salt - a pinch

Directions:

  • Peel and cube ash gourd.
  • Peel lemon and cut into quarters.
  • Cut apple into cubes. 
  • Juice everything using a juicer. Serve with a pinch of himalyan salt.
  • If using a blender, blend everything except lemon. Strain, add squeezed lemon juice and serve with a pinch of himalyan salt.
  • This makes about 3 cups of juice. 
  • Enjoy !!
