Sweet lime or mosambi juice is a common summer drink to beat the heat. Mosambi is a citrus fruit, which is nature's storehouse of Vitamin C and is, therefore, a must have in your daily intake.
Simple and quick to make, mosambi juice also has a detoxifying effect on our body - flushes out toxins and neutralizes the harmful effects of stress and pollution. Juice some fresh, sweet mosambi and enjoy this divine drink for taste or for health or both!
You could use an electric juicer to extract the juice. Don't have one, no worries! Check out how to get your favourite mosambi juice without an electric juicer.
Sweet limes (mosambi): 8-9 (peeled and chopped into pieces)

Remove the seeds from the sweet lime pieces.

Mosambi, due to its high Vitamin C content, aids the prevention of colds and coughs. Use only in-season mosambi as they are juicier, sweet and have high nutritional value.
