Monsoon season comes with its own set of pros and cons. While we have the unbearable humid weather draining us to bits, on the other hand, we also have occasional showers brining immediate relief. But one great part about this time of the year is to have countless seasonal fruits and vegetables thronging the market! And well, who doesn't love refreshing watermelon, pretty pomegranate and pulpy litchis!? It is the season of healthy fresh fruits and juices that help you go about the day beating the heat.
Lychee or litchi is a soft, whitish-pink coloured pulpy fruit. Besides being absolutely delicious, litchi comes with heaps of nutritional benefits that make it a must-have fruit in the diet. The most important of all is its immunity-boosting properties. Litchi is rich in Vitamin C, which may not only strengthen your immunity but may also keep your skin healthy. The fruit may also stimulate the activity of white blood cells that defend the body against foreign materials. While there are many reasons to include litchi in your daily diet, but if you are one of those who are too lazy to peel the fruit and de-seed it every time, juicing is the way to go!
