Nanari Popsicle Recipe

The kids and me have been turning all possible juices into Popsicle this summer. It is a treat for them to make their own Popsicle and eat it too!This was one of the ways to keep the kids engaged at home during summer.

Last year, I posted the Nannari Sherbet recipe and used the same to make this Popsicle too.

The ingredients that go into this sherbet / Popsicle are so beneficial to health, especially in summer. They contain ingredients that are body coolants and maintain the body temperature.

The main ingredient – Nanari is a root from which the concentrate is made. It is widely used in Ayurvedic medicine.

Nannari is known by the Scientific name – Hemidesmus Indicus.The other names include – Anantamuulah / Balyam / Dughgarbhaa[Sanskrit] / Anantamul [Hindi] / Narunrrndi  / Nannari [Malayalam]/ Sugandhi[Telugu],Anamtamula [Kannada] / Suguddimalo[Odiya]

Generally while we make the Nannari sherbet, the concentrated juice is mixed with water and served with a few ice cubes. But I have made this with Almond gum/ badam pisin and Basil seeds/ Sabja seeds.

You can read more about the health benefits of these ingredients in the Nannari Sherbet recipe post.

  • There are several varieties of nanaari concentrate in teh market.Some come with a premix of sugar and other spices / herbs like cinnamon, cloves, mint, lemon juice etc. Mine was plain but premixed with sugar.
  • The color of the Popsicle will depend on the color of the nanari concentrate.

  1. I recently bought nannari syrup and these popsicles look like the perfect recipe to make with it. Love the addition of sabja seeds and almond gum.
