Ice Apple Sarsaparilla Sherbet / Nungu Nannari Sherbet

Summer is the season where we get lot of delicious fruits and the nature by itself has ensured that it gives us natural coolants to beat the heat. One such wonder fruit is the fruit of Palmyra Trees (Panai Maram in Tamil). The fruit is called as Ice Apple or Palm Fruit (Nungu in Tamil). The benefits of this fruit is huge and it act as an excellent hydrating agent.

This fruit is loaded with Vitamins A, B and more amount of Vitamin C (100 gms Flesh has 5 mg of Vitamin C). It is rich in essential minerals like Potassium, Calcium and Phosphorous which are prime most for teeth and bone health. It also aids in weight loss, improves digestion and prevents constipation in Pregnant women.

Ice Apple is available during the months of May to August and the fruit can be eaten raw (eating along with the skin is highly recommended to harness the complete health benefits) or it can be made into delicious Coolers or Desserts. This season I made four different recipes to try with this cool Ice Apples.
