Green spicy tangy juice is a healthy drink loaded with lots of iron and carotene content. This juice is a good summer drink too with lots of immune booster properties and with raw mangoes in season, this is a must try summer drink. This drink brings back the sweet memories of my motherhood when I was carrying my twins. This green juice (without sugar) was my routine drink for complete nine months. I was adviced by doctor to take lots of iron rich juice. This was paired with pomegranate and brahmi juice in my routine. Spinach is a good source of iron, folic acid, vitamin A and E, fibre rich. In this recipe with few changes like adding carrot, red rock candy or kallusakkare and raw mango extract; makes it even more tasty and healthy. Carrots are high in beta carotenes, antioxidants, fibre. Adding carrot gives a sweetish and healthy twist to this green spicy tangy juice.  Lets see the recipe of this simple juice that can be a summer drink or a daily drink with lots of health benefits
