Gourd detox drink is a healthy summer drink to detoxify the body. It is a great thirst quencher. The two gourd veggies I have used in this drink are ash gourd or winter melon and bottle gourd or lauki. Ash gourd contains 95% of water and this helps the body to be hydrated during summers. It has many other health benefits like antimicrobial activity against bad microbes in stomach and intestine, helps in weight loss, loaded with vitamins and minerals. Bottle gourd also has similar health benefits like helps in digestion, has cooling effect, helps in weight loss, lowers cholesterol. This drink is flavored with ginger, honey and lemon juice. It is so simple to prepare, let’s see the recipe of this incredibly beneficial summer gourd detox drink.
