5 fruits to relish this summer

Assorted Sliced Fruits

 The month of May always brings back fond memories of my school days.

I would wait for the last school end bell to ring; I would run to my house with excitement for my “summer vacations”. 

My birthday is in May, so I would plan for my birthday party. 

My mother would always prepare a mango pulp and puris for my birthday, which I would relish. 

She would prepare fruit juices after my evening playtime. 

This made me make a list of 5 yummy fruit juices that will keep our bodies chill this summer.
