Summer season is almost on the verge of its end; meaning, it is time to make the most of the seasonal fruits we have. Mango, watermelon, litchi, muskmelon and more - summer brings along a bunch of sweet, juicy and extremely hydrating fruits that leave us wanting for more. Besides, these fruits are super versatile too - you can make juice, smoothie, dessert and more out of the summer fruits. And if you are like us, then you already have included them in your daily diet. But trust us, there's no end to this list of summer fruit-based recipes. In fact, we feel, the more you explore, the more you come across unique ways of consuming these delights. One such perfect instance is the recipe we recently tried. It's called kharbooja cooler.
Kharbooja (or muskmelon) is one of the most popular fruits we get during the summers. It is healthy, tasty and loads you up with good amount of water. Besides, it is low in calories, making the fruit ideal for daily consumption (and of course, for weight loss too!). We love having chilled, crunchy musk melon as is but did you know, you can also make yummy coolers out it?! Celebrity chef Sanjeev Kapoor, in his latest Instagram post, shared one such musk melon cooler recipe that includes the goodness of cucumber and lemon in it. Sounds oh-so-comforting; isn't it? So, what are you waiting for? Get hold of a sweet muskmelon and make yourself this yummy drink. Let's take a look at the recipe.
