Soda Lemonade: Beat the Heat This Summer With This Refreshing Drink


Summers are here already and you are looking for thanda thanda cool cool drinks to beat the heat. This fizzy lemonade is quick to process and gives you a refreshing treat when you are looking to get some respite from the scorching heat.

The Story Behind the Fizzy Lemonade

I was at mom's place when the weather took a sudden turn, with the chill in the temperature giving way to the hot winds.

Soda lemonade

Perhaps we knew on my cousin:s wedding day that it was the beginning of the hot weather. With summers, we start to experiment with different cooling drinks. Today I have come up with a summer cooler prepared by my younger sibling, my brother.

While we would be busy with our professional commitments, he would come once to serve us this refreshing glass of lemonade. How sweet!

He is too fond of soda drinks, so is his wife. He prepares this soda mint lemonade often, though I have never brought soda bottles home. But this drink is refreshing for those scorching hot days when the sun is in full ablaze.

Lightly sweet, little tangy, and bursting with bubbles is how I define this lemonade fizz, which will help quench your thirst on these bright, hot, and sunny days.

The best thing about this lemonade recipe is that you can experiment with ingredients- add more or less sugar, play with spices of your choice, and enjoy a refreshing summer cooler to beat the heat.  When I asked my brother the process of preparing this lemonade, he was quite explicit with the ingredient amounts. Let's see how my brother makes the soda mint lemonade.

I do not claim this is the healthiest drink on earth, but it is still better than the soda and carbonated drinks that you get outside, which are loaded with sugar and artificial sweeteners and flavorings.

Perhaps this fizzy lemonade is not for those with diabetes, cardiovascular and BP problems. Soda can be a health hazard, so be wary of its use in your day-to-day life. Soda drinks can raise your risk of obesity and diabetes.

However, this one is a better alternative to carbonated drinks if you are looking for a fizzy lemonade to serve guests on a hot summer day.

Homemade Edible Powders: Beetroot, Onion, Garlic, Ginger, Lemon, Orange, Sambar, Kurma, Garam Masala

The title says it all. This post is all about edible powders that can be used as flavoring agents, natural color, and to make food visually attractive. What more do we need? Though I am not too much in favor of drying food and storing the same, this is the best option for those days when these veggies are out of season. During the season, please make it a point to enjoy these fresh and flavorful. There's nothing better and healthier than fresh produce, right?

Okay so the idea to make these powders popped up in my mind as I had too many beetroots at home. When nobody was too eager to have them, the best way to still consume these beauties was to sundry them to powder. I did exactly that.





Then I wondered if I can sundry lemon peels into powder just like we do to orange peels. I have been using orange peels as a face pack thus far. But since the baking bug has bitten me badly, I plan to use it as an edible powder for cakes and cookies too. Fingers crossed for the results though, sin…

The Best Multigrain Digestives: An Airfryer Recipe

The best multigrain digestives? I know I have shared too many digestives recipes but this one is my best. To be frank, I experiment, relish, share, and post the same for you all and then forget all about it because it's time to experiment again with new ingredients. So today it was another kind of digestives - relished by one and all. My cookie making spree has turned my cookie hater hubby into someone who has started to munch on these baked beauties.



Before sharing the simple cookie recipe, it is time to go through oats benefits. You are already aware of my love for oats. One reason you rarely find my recipes without this fibrous cereal grain. Did you go through the fiber benefits?











Go to my fiber benefits post to get deeper insight into the need for including fiber in your diet.



Ingredients
1 cup- oat flour
3/4 cup- whole wheat
1/4 cup- bran
1/4cup- ragi

Diabetic Diet Cake With Watermelon: A Vegan Recipe

While people are still debating whether watermelon is a diabetes-friendly fruit, I still stick to my notion that diabetics can have this fruit for its sheer hydration effect. Not only this, the fruit is loaded with minerals, nutrients, and antioxidants that make it a health-friendly food. However, diabetics with kidney issues should avoid watermelon. Anyway, let's come back to the watermelon cake recipe for diabetics. Well, this cake uses another fruit - banana- which even I do not think is diabetes-friendly. But I went ahead with including a banana for this recipe merely to keep the fat content low. I hope you all know that a banana is a good substitute for an egg for an eggless cake recipe.

Since an egg is also loaded with saturated fat, diabetics should avoid it at any cost. So I had to choose between an egg and a banana for this diabetes-friendly cake, and ended up voting for this humble fruit - which is one of my favorites too. Yes!

When you think of a vegan diabetes-friendl…
