As a mom of two young kids, I am always looking for different ways to add healthy stuff in my kid’s diet. Adding plum juice to my family menu is so beneficial for all of us.

Why Plums? Plums are good for boosting immunity and help with indigestion.  The most common treatment to treat constipation in babies, is  adding prune juice in the babies diet. Since, plums are the fresher version of prunes, it is equally good for treating tummy problems, which are so common in growing kids. Plums are not just good for kids but helps in maintain healthy heart, controls cholesterol levels and helps in maintaining the electrolyte balance of a body.

Plums are loaded with immense range of healthy components, vitamins and minerals. It is  a great source Vitamin C and rich in antioxidants. When you combined these two elements you get a radiant and a healthy skin.

Plum is a seasonal fruit and in season for a short period of time, which is around May to October. Perhaps no version of fruit can beat the taste of a fresh juicy bite of plum, still I like to try and consume it in different ways. Plums are available for such a small period that you would like to enjoy this nutrient dense fruit in all possible avatar. One of that versions is this delicious sweet, sour and savory drink of plum, which I am sure you are going to enjoy it in a same way like my friends and family love it every single time.

The addition of fresh green mint, roasted cumin seeds and black rock salt to enhance its taste makes it ideal cooler to beat the heat of hot summers in addition to a perfect digestive drink.

To make this drink you need to roast the plums first, it can be boiled as well but I chose to roast them rather because roasting takes it to a next level by intensifying its flavor, color, juice and its natural sugar.

Do you know that medium of heating can change the way natural sugar reacts. So, roasting is a dry heat method of cooking which helps in caramelizing the natural sugar of fruit and help in bringing out all the hidden flavor of fruit and if the plums are sweet enough not very sour then probably you don’t even need to add any additional sweetener to this drink.

There is one more reason of roasting over boiling that plum contains high percentage of water soluble vitamins and fibers. Roasting help to keep those nutrients intact in fruit itself.

Being a Mom of school going kids one question always bugs me, i.e. what to pack as drink for them? The juices available in the market are nothing but a flavored sugar syrup with unwanted ingredients and chemicals in them. Freshly squeezed juices needs to be consumed as soon as it is prepared unless they are treated with heat; hence, the choices are not much when it comes to packing drinks for school. This drink at least gives me few days of relief from that, whenever I prepare it. I, usually pack this drink in an insulated flask or bottle with lots of ice in it to maintain the temperature, the cooler the tastier isn’t it.

Enough of talking for now as you must be eagerly waiting for the recipe to begin. So, without wasting a single second let’s check out what all you need to make this drink.
