My kids love to assist me when I am in kitchen during holidays. Today is their holiday for 15th August (Indian Independent day) and they were interested to make this juice. They loved it very much and were so proud that they had made it all by themselves and have  saved  one glass in refrigerator for their father. I have just guided them.
