Strawberry Milkshake ~ Daughter posts for me :)


Strawberry Milkshake


Amma  bought fresh strawberries last week which looked irresistible and I instantly dug into the box to taste one. But I was a little disappointed as it didn’t taste as good as it seemed. Sigh!

Kavya:  Amma, these strawberries are sour. What do we do with them?
Amma:  Oh oh! But strawberries are good for health. So let’s eat at least one berry a day and finish this box.
Kavya: ‘What? no way!! :(’..*thinks for a while*… okay. Amma, Shall I make strawberry milkshake ?. :D. I am an amateur at this. But let me give a try. :)

Surprisingly it turned out to be really tasty and refreshing and it is now our favourite evening drink.
This is my version of strawberry milkshake. Simple to make and hard to resist!! :D

This is how I made it.

Strawberry Milkshake

Strawberry Milkshake 
One large or two small servings
(Yields 300 ml)

I needed:
3 large fresh strawberries
1 to 1 ½ tablespoons of powdered sugar
200 ml of cold milk

Method:

Strawberry Milkshake


Cut strawberries into small pieces and put them in the blender. Add the powdered sugar and blend well into a smooth paste.

Strawberry Milkshake


Add cold milk and blend again to a frothy fresh shake!
Serve chilled.
(you can also try adding a scoop of natural strawberry ice-cream to make a richer, creamier shake. Use less or no sugar).

Hope you like this healthy and nourishing drink and the final pictures I clicked :)
