Refreshing Grewia Asiatica/ Falsay Juice

Grewia Asiatica popularly known as Falsay in Asia. They are small berries that taste sweet and sour at the same time. The squash is prepared from its pulp as it acts as a cooling agent during summers. They are rich in vitamin C, calcium and if consumed regularly during the summers it can protect you from hot weather related health problems. I usually eat this small purple fruit by sprinkling a dash of coarse salt during hot and sticky June afternoons, it purifies blood and reduces my digestive problems.

Well, living in a Asian country we enjoy all sorts of fresh fruits, unique beverages and delicious street foods. Grewia Asiatica or Falsay was one of those treats here. I actually searched its recipe but couldn't find one. Just last week, I found out my aunt makes this all the time! So, thanks to my aunt, you too can prepare this sweet and tangy Grewia Asiatica juice in summers at home!

This makes a large amount and it is great for your backyard parties. I am a berry lover so this juice is an added bonus for me. It is made with clean and light ingredients and you can definitely include this drink in your water diet plan! I usually freeze it in the summer for an awesome berry Popsicle for my niece and nephew.

I did this with water instead of using soda or sprite to give you a healthier option and it just tasted as good as the soda version.
