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!

I head back over in a couple weeks for a Paris-to-Rome, then three more weeks in Italy. It’s not as glamorous as it might sound, largely since it’s work, not travel…but yeah, I feel pretty damn blessed to have the chance at it. Now if only I could talk you into coming on one of my tours. 😉
I’ve been well! (Although a chunk of my molar came off this afternoon. Oops.) I’m actually back in the US, though I got a job as a tour guide in Europe, so will be heading back over there in a couple weeks. C’est la vie!
How was the bloggers’ summit?
I can’t tell which I find more appealing, the thought of y’all bloggers hanging out, or putting cumin in such a refreshing drink. I’m going to go with both.
That’s such a pretty color. Great post for your theme!!
Reblogged this on Chef Ceaser.
The all encompassing purple hue makes the drink an instant visual delight. The flavours of Amla with jamun is further accentuated with the dash of honey and rock salt. Loved the creative deftness behind this truly refreshing and yummy drink.

Hello Sonal, glad to have you amongst us. That’s really a refreshing drink with the tinge of gooseberry. Gorgeous colour !
I’ve never heard of jamun, but love the color!
It’s a local and native berry to India. Very healthy for diabetics and weight watchers…
Yum! After seeing Shailja use the jamun in a drink, I bought some. Now, I’m really inspired to use it today!
