Vellai Poosanikai Juice for weight loss
After posting Kollu drink for weight loss I had requests for weight loss drinks from readers. So wanted to share a simple Moor or buttermilk with vegetable (Poosanikai/ white pumpkin) that Amma makes for me whenever I come to see her. This is a great vegetable that helps you to lose weight and remove excess water retention in the body. There is no specification that you need to have it in empty stomach but its best to have this during hot summers as this drink is a natural coolant for the body during hot days. If you are prone to cold please avoid this drink. White pumpkins are very low in calorie, filled with Vitamin A, B complex. They have anti inflammatory properties and best for people suffering joint pains. Pumpkins are also best for skin and hair health.
