Amla Sherbet Recipe

Sharbat or sherbet is a popular West and South Asian drink prepared from fruits or flower petals. It is sweet, diluted with water and served chilled to create a drink.

The Indian gooseberry, known locally as Amla, is a nutrient rich fruit. It has been a common ingredient in the ancient Indian medicinal practice of Ayurveda. It’s a potent source of Vitamin C and also contains iron and calcium. It also offers a number of beauty benefits for your hair and skin.
