Bottle Gourd Juice & a refreshed morning


I have been meaning to post this recipe for ages but somehow I miss clicking a picture and so postpone writing about it.

Recipe, here, seems like a huge word for this drink. Just juice them all and drink up instantly. This was shared with me by a dietician I had visited over a decade ago. It is supposed to help you clean your system and refresh you, not to mention it’s amazing effects on your skin. But more than anything else, surprisingly it tastes so good that you hardly need another reason for a bottoms up! 


The best part is that even my two year old gulps this down in glee and saves me a lot of trouble to get some veggies down her throat.

So here goes –


1/2 of a large bottle gourd

1 large cucumber



  • Cut the bottle gourd and cucumber into small cubes
  • Use a juicer to get the juice
  • Add salt and drink up



  1. If you don’t have a juicer I think you can use mixer/ blender and then strain the juice . I haven’t tried it though.
  2. Drink up the juice at the earliest. If you leave it out for long it develops a brownish froth which is not so good.
