Aavarampoo milkshake to prevent diabetes

Lifestyle habits in teens these days has resulted in early diabetes. Although it is crucial to follow healthy food habits and exercises, natural remedies can help to prevent diabetes to a large extent. Children do not like the taste of many herbal teas or homemade native medicine powders and refuse to consume them. This milkshake is for young adults to improve their immune system and prevent diabetes.

Aavarampoo or Tanner’s cassia is a bright yellow flower found easily in Tropical regions particularly by riverbeds. Regular consumption of the flower can boost immunity, can regulate insulin levels and control diabetes,  can purify blood and is rich in anti-oxidants. A juice made using the fresh flowers can be used to cure UTI (Urinary Tract Infection). Adults can drink a tea made with Aavarampoo flowers to derive its benefits.

External application of a paste of Aavarampoo flowers can clear the skin, cure acne and give a natural glow. A powder made with dried aavarampoo flowers can be mixed with green gram flour and be used to give babies a bath.

This milk shake is made using dried Aavarampoo flowers, papaya and milk. Papaya is rich in Vitamins C and A and are filled with anti-oxidants. This milk shake can hence boost immunity and make kids healthier. We’ve used Stevia leaves instead of Sugar for getting a naturally sweet drink. This milk shake hence tastes as good as it is made with sugar but is very healthy too. You can also use stevia leaves powder instead of the fresh leaves.
