What can I say…….refreshing, cooling and deliciously cleansing.  It’s like drinking cool silk and the cooling effects on the body feel immediate.  This is a wonderful drink that I have been having three times a week to reduce the heat and Pitta imbalance in my body.

moong dal juice

serves 4 medium glasses

I recommend using fresh cardamom pods rather than powder to really benefit from the aromatic & medicinal qualities.  If you have time and the use of a juicer, make your own apple juice to benefit from the freshness and nutritional value of the apples.

ingredients : 

¼ cup whole moong dal (mung beans)

3 pods cardamom (¼ tsp)

1 apple, cored and quartered

1 cup freshly pressed apple juice (approximately 2 apples) or unsweetened organic fresh apple juice

1 cup filtered water

pre-preparation 

1.  Place the dal in a bowl and rinse with water, cover with 3 cups of water and soak for 10 -12 hours.  Rinse, drain and set aside.

2.  Remove the outer pods from the cardamom, place the seeds in a mortar and pestle and grind until you have a fine powder.  Set aside.

3.  In a high-speed blender, place the soaked dal, cardamom powder, apple pieces, apple juice and water – blend on high speed for at least one minute or until completely smooth.  The juice will be frothy.  I like to enjoy as is, or it can be strained for a smoother consistency.
