This is the moment of excitement for me. Ask me why? Hey ho! I am on my way to the first Blog Hop with talented bloggers like Jayashree, Piyali, Anupama, Shubha, Padma, Vani, Shailja and Swati! I am super excited. We decide a theme for each blog hop and then create and post, re-post and mingle! A great way to keep the creative juices flowing.
As you can guess, this time the theme is Beverages! It seems that beverages never stop to amaze me. I always have something to guzzle on, guilt free! Well, it’s kinda very obvious now, my blog…a healthier and wholesome take!
Jamun is a seasonal Indian “plum” called Java plum. Amla is Indian Gooseberry. Thank goodness that we get these fruits in the frozen section in Indian grocery stores here, making them pretty handy. Do you know how nutritious these are? Jamun is advised for diabetics and Amla is filled with goodness of Vitamin C. This combination is just awesome. Tasty as well as nutritious!
This is how I made it! As I say, delicious recipes need not be complicated and difficult! Hop on to my blog hop and check recipes at the bottom of the post by other talented people!
