When my son asked me a few years back ” what are Mulberries, Mom ?”, I could only sigh.I explained to him how they look and taste but was assured that he’ll never be able to taste the fruit as I have myself not eaten it for a long long time and have not seen it in the markets anywhere…When we were kids, there was a huge Mulberry tree in my grandparents backyard and we cared less for the fruit.Mangoes and watermelons were the favorites.It was available so abundantly that it was given no importance. But now the fruit has almost become exotic and very hard to find. When I saw it available on one of the online grocery stores I shop with ( Towness.com ), I wasted no time in ordering my share and was very happy when my son tasted the fruit and liked it.We finished half of it for our evening snack and saved the half to make this delicious drink that my mom used to make for us when we were small.This drink is perfect for the summers and is very refreshing.With the basic ingredients at hand and availability of Mulberries, you can make it in no time.So here is the recipe

Powdered sugar-14 cup

  1. Growing up in Iowa we were surrounded by mulberry trees and every summer the bottoms of my feet were always stained purple. We would make mulberry pie, but never thought of making a drink out of it. I now have a mulberry tree in my backyard here in LA and will give your drink a try when they come into season.

  2. we have mulberry trees all around our neighborhood, and just went picking last night. I can’t wait to try this!
