Garcinia Cambogia Juice

Garcinia cambogia (GC) also known as Malabar tamarind has been around for many years. But recently it has got lot of attention as a weight lose food. Since I don’t know anything about the weight loss or fat burning property of Garcinia, I am not going to comment about it here. I am here to share with you another cool homemade summer drink- Garcinia Cambogia Juice.




Garcinia Cambogia is a small fruit. The fact is it’s not new and it has been consumed in many parts of Asia for many years. Even we have the Garcinia Cambogia tree in our orchard in Kerala. In my native language, the fruit is called ‘kudampuli’ .  The other common names of the fruit are pot tamarind and brindleberry. The tree bears lots of fruit at the same time. Since it is very difficult to store the fresh fruit, we usually preserve it in the dried  form. The garcinia cambogia juice I share today is made with it’s dry fruit.

Preserved in the dry form, garcinia will be available year-round in my home. We have been using it in many curries for many years but not with the intention of weight loss. We didn’t even knew this small fruit in our orchard have this miracle property (if true) to inhibit fat accumulation.

Coming back to the garcinia cambogia juice, this can be a good tangy summer drink sweetened with jaggery syrup (see the syrup recipe here). Dry garcinia cambogia is available in many Indian grocery stores. There is another fruit that looks almost the same – kokum. But both are different. kokum is also good to make juice, but if you are looking for garcinia, make sure you are buying the same.
