I thought of making this pretty looking cooler since its summers and look at the gorgeous colour when they are blitzed! Sheer beauty! I prefer my smoothies sweet and my coolers kinda funky with a combination of sweet, sour and spicy.
Mulberries are rich with nutrients like Iron, Riboflavin, Vitamin C, Vitamin K etc. Like most berries, they have a good amount of dietary fibre which keeps you full and enables good bowel movements so great for those suffering from constipation.
Berries in general are also found to be very useful in fighting cancer, blood pressure and heart ailments.
I certainly don’t need any reason to have Mulberries or Shahtoot as they call in Hindi. They are gorgeous and in season – Get a batch, blitz and stay cool!
Prep Time – 10 mins max
Cook Time – Nil
Ingredients for making one tall glass of Cooler
15 nos of Fresh Mulberries
¼ teaspoon of Himalayan Pink Salt
1/4 teaspoon of paprika powder
1 teaspoon Sugar
¼ teaspoon of Chaat Masala Powder
A small pinch of roasted Jeera Powder
Few mint leaves
- Wash and pat dry the fresh mulberries. Don’t wash mulberries under running water as they are tender berries and often get squashed easily. Just soak them for a couple of minutes in a bowl of cold water and then drain / dry them in a colander.
- In a mixer grinder jar, add the fresh mulberries along with salt, paprika powder, sugar, chaat masala powder, roasted jeera powder and 1-2 mint leaves.
- Give all the ingredients a quick blitz until a thick flavoursome paste is formed.
- Pour this in a glass, add required quantity of water, mix and serve it chilled.
Recipe Notes –
- You can add soda instead of water and make it more interesting. Since I avoid fizzy drinks as much as I can, I haven’t done the same.
- Want to turn this into a cocktail, Add some vodka or gin, this would be fabulous!
