I made these Nungu Popsicle last year!Yes, my drafts still has a lot of pospicles from last summer. Well,the summer was unbearable and the kids developed heat rashes. One of the best ways to beat the heat is to drink tender coconut water /eat Nungu.

Nungu is known by the names – Asian Palmyra Palm,Toddy palm, Sugar Palm, Ice Apple and Cambodian Palm. Borassus flabellifer is its Botanical name.

The fruits are found in clusters and are black in color. When the top portion is cut off, 3 soft translucent, jelly like fruits are reviled. This is scooped out and the hard outer portion is removed the jelly like fruit is consumed.

If the outer part[brown color] is not mature, it can be consumed without removing it. Here is a close up pic….

 So, as I was telling you, nungu is one of the best ways to beat the heat.But Lil Dude hates it to the core. He doesn’t even like to hold it in his hands!! I still wonder why!!
On the other hand, Lil Angel eats this with relsih. I had to find ways to make the lil one eat. The Rose flavored and kesar badam flavored Nungu Milk and Nungu Milkshake are a few dishes that the lil guy liked. This Popsicle is another way to make him get the benefits of teh fruit in a way that he will relish.
