  • 2 tamarind pods
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 4 cups of water (filtered)


  • To make tamarind juice, shell two tamarind pods and scoop out the pulp.
  • Soak the tamarind pulp in 2 cups of warm water for 5-10 minutes.
  • Then, add the pulp, water, and sugar to a blender and blend gently.
  • Strain the mixture through a sieve or cheesecloth.
  • Add the other 2 cups of water, serve chilled and enjoy!


While some people may like to boil the tamarind with water instead of soaking it, it is best to avoid this method as it is likely to decrease the health benefits.
