Pomegranate: 1 big (almost 1 cup when deseeded)
Cucumber: 1/2 cup peeled,deseeded and chopped
Lemon Juice: almost 1 tbsp
Sugar Syrup: 1/4 cup or sugar as per taste
Add all the ingredients in the blender and blend to obtain a thick puree.Strain and serve chilled.Sugar can be added later.But since little water is needed for grinding I made a sugar syrup and then cooled and added it while blending.
You can increase or decrease the pomegranate and cucumber as per taste.If you like either cucumber or pom,you are sure to like this drink.The taste is a combo of both pom and cucumber and colour is that of pom.
Cucumber Dill Smoothie
This is not exactly a smoothie as smoothies are made from fruits and contain sugar.This has got yoghurt and cucumber and dill and the word smoothie suits finely rather than soup.So taking liberties I am calling it smoothie.
Cucumber: 1 peeled,deseeded and chopped
Dill leaves: few(1 tbsp+)
Plain Yoghurt/Curd: 1/4 cup +/-
Salt & Pepper: as per taste
Ice cubes/crushed (optional)
Blend all the ingredients to obtain a thick puree.The thickness depends on the amount of yogurt used or as per taste.Serve chilled if ice cubes are not added.This is very refreshing on a hot summer noon.
