It’s mid of May and summers are just around their peak. Daily the temperature is reaching 40 C or above. It’s getting hard day by day to go out of the house for daily chores due to the scorching heat. It seems like this situation is going to stay for a while.

Today’s temperature

Many people are getting dehydrated due to the loss of water from the body in sweat and reduced water intake. The weather is so hot that if I open the windows, hot air circulates the entire house or if I shut them close, I feel like suffocated. The best way to describe this weather is by using the famous line of my grandmother who goes on like:

“It is so hot that if you break an egg on the floor, it will get fried”.

Due to global warming, summers are getting extremely hot and it’s getting harder to withstand the heat. Whatever the situation is, we cannot change the weather or reduce the extent of heat, but one thing can be done to bear it. That is keeping ourselves hydrated by drinking lots of water and healthy fruit juices and shakes. That is what I do every summer to keep myself from getting heatstroke or other adverse effects.

So, today I am going to share a few delicious and nutritious shakes and juices that I make every day to keep myself healthy and hydrated. When served cold with ice, it feels like I am in heaven. I know I am exaggerating but they really deserve this exaggeration.

Rooh-e-Afzah with lemon and basil seeds:

Those living in Pakistan must be aware of the famous Rooh-e-Afzah. It is easy to make and delicious as well. All you have to do is take 2 to 3 tablespoons of it and mix it in ice-cold water. Squeeze a lemon in it and put some basil seeds in it which get puffed up in a few minutes. Mix it and enjoy. It will literally kill all the heat in your body besides basil seeds are well known for this purpose.

Mango Shake:

What else can be easier to make than making a big glass of mango shake by simply adding mangoes to milk in a juicer with lots of ice? Everyone either younger or older people, everyone loves mangoes. Especially, summer is the season of this fruit. So, try to enjoy as many mangoes shake as well. It will give you strength and nutrition and help in boosting body energy when you feel lethargic.

Mint Margarita:

This one is my personal favorite. I have been enjoying this since Ramadan. All you have to do is take a juicer, add 7up, ice cubes, mint, lemon juice, and black salt. Blend, blend, and blend. Your fresh and healthy margarita is ready. Enjoy every sip of it. Its main ingredient is mint, and we all know that it keeps our digestive system on track as it helps in the digestion of food. As a result, our body stays fit.

Falsa Juice:

Last but not least, falsa juice is highly refreshing that soothes the body. Although it is a little bit time taking than the above three mentioned juices and shakes, however one thing is for sure, it is the most delicious juice anyone can ask for. All you have to do is take half a cup of falsa, some sugar, and black salt in a juicer, add one cup of water to it and blend. It will have this highly thick consistency with crushed seeds. Strain it in a jar and pour two glasses of ice-cold water. Mix it and enjoy.

I love the most falsa and mango but if we count these to beat the heat so root afza with basil seed is best along with it we should take all more water containing fruits and juices like lemonade. When go out keep a bottle of water with you. It's really too hot.
