7 Fresh Summer Juice Recipes From the East African Islands and Their Benefits

So summer is here and one of the most important things we need during the long summer days is to stay hydrated. But there are places in the world where summer never goes away. Take my home town Mombasa for instance: the temperature is above 95 degrees most of the year.

 

I am about to give you fresh drink recipes and their benefits that you have not read in any blog before. These are healthy drinks that are easy to make and are so soothing that you are going to thank me for this.

 

Remember, where I come from food is mostly prepared by instinct and no exact measures are available a lot of the time. So please add ingredients based on your own taste and use HONEY or any other healthy sweetener to your taste.

 

The best way is to use a juicer, if you don’t have one just blend and use a sieve.
