Bottlegourd & Gooseberry juice

Today is the first day of the year 2020. I wanted to start my day, year and this decade on a healthy note. So, started my date with the healthy Lauki Amla Juice. Bottlegourd & Gooseberries, both are rich in nutrients and offer multiple health benefits. They are known to promote heart, skin and hair health, aid digestion, cure constipation etc.

Importance of health can never be overemphasized because when you have health, you have everything.  Good health starts with healthy eating and healthy living.  Starting the day with a fresh vegetable juice can work wonders for your body. These are small lifestyle habits which can go a long way in maintaining a healthy body. To quote Jim Rohn – ”Take care of your body. It is the only place you have to live.”.

I have shared quite a few healthy juice recipes on this blog such as Green Detox Juice, Amla Juice, ABC Juice, Morning Boost, Mixed Vegetable Juice, Amla Cucumber  Juice , Ash Gourd Juice etc. Today, let us see how to make Lauki Amla Juice:


1 cup of peeled & chopped bottle gourd (lauki/ doodhi)
1 cup of chopped gooseberries (amla)
½ inch ginger, chopped (adrak)
½ tsp rock salt (kaala namak)

Bottlegourd & Gooseberry juice


  • Into a mixer jar, add chopped bottle gourd, chopped amla, ginger and around ¾ cup of water.
  • Blend the vegetables to a smooth mixture.
  • Strain the mixture using a strainer and extract the juice.
  • Add rock salt and mix.
  • Pour into glasses and serve.

Note : Before making the juice, it is very important to taste a small piece of bottle gourd. It should not taste bitter. If it tastes bitter, discard it.
