Pomegranate Litchi Lemon Juice | Summer Coolers

For the third summer cooler I am posting another refreshing juice which can be easily made at home.
Pomegranate is a very healthy fruit. Ofcourse it might be tiresome to some people to remove the delicious pearls and eat it. I love this fruit and will clean the pomegranate, and eat it along the way without sharing with anyone else. 

 In Malayalam poets compare lips of females with pomegranate, may be because of its color. Pomegranate has a lot of health benefits.  It is the most powerful anti-oxidant of all fruits, has potent anti-cancer and immune supporting effects; it can help to reduce heart attacks, strokes and embolic disease. It can also help in lowering cholesterol and reduce other cardiac risk factors, lower blood pressure and it is also shown to promote reversal of atherosclerotic plaque in human studies. It also helps or relives depression and osteoporosis.

Similarly litchi also has a lot of health benefits. I shall research and post it another post.Instead of using the litchi fruit, I used the litchi juice here. Lemon is a very good thirst-reliever. I actually found this recipe a perfect accompaniment for grilled entree.


Pomegranate - 1/2 cup
Litchi juice - 1 glass
Lemon - 2
Water - 2 glass
Sugar - 2 tbsp
Ice cubes - as needed


  • Extract juice out of the 2 lemons.
  • In a blender add pomegranate pearls, sugar, little water and blend together to form a smooth consistency and strain through the strainer and set aside.
  • Mix the strained liquid with litchi juice, lemon juice and remaining water. 
  • Mix well and serve with ice cubes.

Enjoy this healthy drink!!!


  • We can use pomegranate juice also instead of the fruit.
  • Adding ginger to this will make it an excellent detox drink.
