Although most fruits can be made into a drink in this way, soft fruits are especially good for this recipe. It is a fresh and healthy summer drink. Banana, pineapple, melon, watermelon, strawberries, raspberries, peaches, pears can all be used. You can use more than one fruit if you wish. Also see Fresh Fruit Juice, Indian Style. Serves 4
