Did you ever try nongu (in Tamil) or palm fruit seed or ice apple? It is a very special summer fruit available in the tropical region. Many Bengali people also raise their eyebrows because certainly, they did not hear about this nongu. If I would say taal saas then there will be a smile on their face because taal saas is a very common summer fruit in West Bengal & Bangladesh. But as a Bengali, I use to have this as a fruit and directly consume this. I was surprised to know that in many states, it is also used to make the delicious drink – Nongu paal or palm fruit drink or ice apple milkshake.

I have tried drumstick (moringa) leaves smoothies. But you need fruits & some other ingredients in your kitchen inventory. But this time, I have tried a simple drink with those drumstick leaves. IT’S MORINGA LEMONADE! A very delicious & refreshing drink. [Read more…] about Moringa lemonade, Refreshing drumstick leaves lemonade
It is not just a normal smoothie. You can call it a superfood smoothie. It contains several vitamins & minerals. Many experts & specialists said that it has various medicinal values.
