Benefits of Mango Panna:
Its not just a yummy and refreshing drink in itself, but it also has the properties to beat the summer heat! It prevents loss of basic salts [sodium chloride] and iron due to sweating in summers. Apart from being a rich source of vitamin B & C, it is also great for intake while having gastrointestinal disorders.

- Add the watery pulp in the Mixi jar and add Sugar/Jaggery to it.
- Blend it so that it becomes smooth thick flowing liquid.

- This Mango Panna can be served by adding 2-3 fresh mint leaves on the top for a fresh flavor.
Since it is made of Unripe green mangoes, it will add a tinge of sourness in the drink which really gives an invigorating taste to the Panna. Believe on me, it is really yummy.
