Getting the name watermelon juice, what everyone would expect is the usual watermelon juice. But recently I had a little spicy and sweet version of watermelon in a restaurant. Also I want to try it at home, gave a try and the juice was fabulous.
I have induced little black pepper powder and salt to enhance more flavor to the juice. A perfect coolant which helps a lot in digestion. Let us move on to the recipe…

Sapotta is a delicious calorie-rich fruit like mango, banana and jack fruit. It has a smooth and grainy texture with a sweet and musky flavor. It is also known as “chikoo” or “chiki” in Hindu, “sapota” in Telugu,“sapotta” in Tamil and “sapodilla” in English.
Recently I have been trying out few summer recipes, with fruits. Already I have shared a falooda recipe, around last summer and this time when I got to see sapotta, thought of trying out Falooda. The outcome was too good, I have induced Hershey’s chocolate syrup and condensed milk for more sweetness and more flavor.
Benefits of sapotta: The Vitamin-E in the fruit moisturizes the skin and also it is rich in antioxidants and acts as an anti-ageing agent.
