As I said before I have been trying different various of juices this summer and felt the necessity of avoiding sugar and making spicy juices for a change too. Why should juices be sweet always and why should we makes juices just with fruits? Why not vegetables?

This bottle gourd juice is sure a delicious one and remember to keep the vegetable name a secret when you serve this to your family. Let them guess it and have some fun :)

You can also make the same combo of juice with cucumber too. Get creative this summer!

Method:
