The Story

A drink that beats the heat.

Aam panna is a famous traditional Indian drink. It is usually made in villages as a substitute for soft drinks. This drink has many health benefits as raw mangoes are a rich source of vitamin C, which helps to boost immunity naturally. When I was a kid I use to freeze aam panna instead of drinking it to make aam panna popsicles.
