Aam Panna Made with Green Mangoes

I simply adore fresh homemade drinks to rejuvenate myself, be it Aam-Panna, Jal-Jeera { coming soon ;-) } or  Lemonade { Shared prev. ~click here to see~ }. Because one, these are free of any preservatives and two, these are made by fresh (homegrown/garden fresh) ingredients, so can vouch for its aroma and freshness in every sip which no carbonated drinks can beat....right ?????. OK now, back to out topic for the day - Aam panna, is a very famous Indian drink known from ages for its summer cooler properties, is sure to beat this summer heat. It is made with Raw green mangoes, some fresh mint and toped with roasted cumin. This is a very simple recipe from our home and is surely going to chill you inside out.  Take a big chilled bottle at the beach with you or enjoy it after a rigorous workout, as this is rich in Vitamin B1, B2 and C, it will be all yours forever.
