Mint leaves – Used to enhance the taste and minty flavour. You can add more leaves if you like.
Ginger – Little ginger used to give a mildly spicy kick. If you don’t like then you can omit it.
Coconut milk – Coconut milk used to enhance the taste. I like the flavour of coconut milk. I had coconut milk powder so I used it. But you can use 1/4 to 1/2 cup canned or fresh coconut milk or use 1/4 cup grated fresh coconut instead of coconut milk.
Lemon – Used lemon to give a tangy taste and nice refreshing flavour.
Lemons contain a high amount of vitamin C, soluble fiber, and plant compounds that give them a number of health benefits. Lemons may aid weight loss and reduce your risk of heart disease, anemia, kidney stones, digestive issues, and cancer.
