Sweet Gooseberry Juice/ Nellikka(Amla) Juice

           Gooseberry has a sour taste and a sweet after taste.... Mostly people find it difficult to have the juice as it is salty & sour enough...So lets try something different..A sweeter version...This juice resembles the taste of lemon juice + sugarcane juice...Yes...the taste is really amazing ...I have tried this for the first time in my hubby's house...& it was a grand success...All were really fond of this juice....& more and more gooseberries were bought to me to prepare this juice & store in the refrigerator... So whoever comes..or whenever one feels thirsty...Gooseberry juice was at call..... If interested you can add little ginger juice to this...for the extra punch....

            The juice, prepared from this fruit is highly rejuvenating and nutritious.... Regular intake of Gooseberry juice helps in digestion, brings glow to the skin and hair, it even prevents hair from getting white.... The season of this fruit begins in December and extends to April with the  highest content of Vitamin C  which  helps in reducing blood cholesterol by dilating the blood vessels and there by reducing the blood pressure..... It also strengthens heart muscles.....Daily dose of gooseberry can relive you from day-today stresses....You can take out gooseberry juice and can even store and preserve it to use after the season.....
