Another refreshing cooler for this summer Musk Melon juice with Jaggery. Yes Jaggery is the highlight of the recipe adding flavour and freshness.

I love musk melon and make it my go-to drink when temperature rises. Musk melon is loaded with nutrients and especially water content. It is also known as sweet melon or rock melon and is believed to have originated in Persia. Muskmelon is a rich source of vitamins A and C, folate, potassium, magnesium and dietary fiber. It's a delicious fruit that can be enjoyed on its own or combined with other fruits for a refreshing smoothie. I like to add jaggery for its health benefits.

Musk melon juice with Jaggery is a cool, refreshing drink that is also good for you!

It helps to beat the heat, and it's full of healthy antioxidants.

Jaggery contains iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, and other minerals. It also has magnesium and potassium—good for your heart and bones! In fact, it's good for you in general.

It has antioxidants too. Its low glycemic index makes it an ideal choice for diabetics but as always everything in moderation !

      Hi Elaine , thank you for stopping by to have a look at my recipe. So musk melon is also similar to cantaloupe and Jaggery is cane sugar where the molasses has not be separated. This kind is used widely in Indian sweet dishes and adds a very different taste. It is also rich in iron and other minerals. You can also read about it here . Thank you 😃🙏🏻
