Lauki Carrot Juice -Detox Drink



The Lauki Juice is the best early morning drink to help detox. You can consume bottle gourd in juice form. Bottle gourd is an excellent food with loads of nutritional value. Drinking bottle gourd juice with salt keeps one refreshed and cool during summer. . It has several other names in India and around the world -ghiya, doodhi, lauki, white gourd, bottle squash, calabash gourd etc. When carrots are cooked, all the nutrients are lost. Start with a little fat and a little liquid, along with whatever seasonings you choose… Lauki carrot juice is an especially nice liquid to begin with, because the reducing process concentrates both its sweetness and its acidity. (A little lemon juice at the end adds the perfect balance.) .The secret is in the carrots and are sweeter than other varieties and really balance out the earthiness of the bottle gourd while the ginger adds a hint of spice. 


Bottle gourd provides good amount of both soluble and insoluble fibre and water. It is very helpful during summers and specially those who work under the hot sun as it has the ability to prevent heat strokes and recovers the water lost due to perspiration. Bottle gourd is also beneficial in conditions like jaundice and inflammation of kidneys.This recipe is a powerhouse of antioxidants, high fiber, and great anti-inflammatory food. It’s not only nutritious but also delicious. This stuck me up to make this juice recipe with 2 ingredients.
