Jamun Juice

BM # 29   Week 3    Day 2

Color of the day Purple
Jamun is a purple colored fruit, which is available only during the two summer months.It is a tropical berry , oblong shaped with a unique taste and flavor.The pulp of the fruit is pinkish grey and there is a seed in it. 

Several studies provide evidence that jamun has hypoglycemic effects with up to 30 per cent reduction in blood sugar reported in some studies. Seeds are rich in alkaloids which have hypoglycemic effects. 

As a kid I loved to eat these as after eating these the tongue used to turn purple and we as kids used to get fascinated. Today I have made jamun juice which looks so pretty, besides it is refreshing and full of vitamins and minerals. 


250 gms jamuns
2 tsp sugar or to taste
Pinch black salt
Chop the jamuns , discarding the seeds.
Adding all the ingredients in the blender , blend
Add about 250 ml water and blend again
Strain the juice and dilute it to the desired consistency.
Serve with ice cubes.



During the season one gets to see vendors selling these Jamuns along with some other berries which are available during this time.The way they display these fruits is a pretty sight and one has to stand by and admire the color combination.This fascination made me click these pics.Though I do not like the rest of the fruits..except for faalsa.In fact we have a faalsa tree in the house which right now is at peak bloom.You could check the Faalsa Juice here.
