Smoothie vs Milkshake – This has always been a debating topic in my brain. I finally found a simple line to explain its difference.
Smoothies have the fruit as the basic ingredient whereas milkshakes have milk or ice cream as the basic ingredient. I prefer smoothies and milkshakes only when I visit restaurants. Because I believe in actually consuming a fruit as such is always better than smoothie/juice/shakes. When it comes to preparation of shakes I rarely do it for my husband for evening snack when his schedule is undetermined. I just made a random attempt of making a smoothie for my son and he loved it. I just picked the ingredients at random and blended. From now on I will keep trying more smoothies.I just love that taste. It is a good option for kids who don’t eat fruits as such. Healthy drink for mothers who keep missing meals at right times.
I love the coinage “ABC smoothie”.. and it just happened 🙂
- Milk-2 tbsp
- Palm sugar-1 tbsp
1.Soak almonds in luke warm milk.
2.Open the chikku into two halves,check for the goodness of the fruit and de seed
3.Use a spoon to scoop the flesh.
4.Now chop the banana.
5.The almonds would have turned soft. You can peel the skin or add such.
6.Blend almond,banana,chikku into a fine paste.
7.Add palm sugar and milk and give a quick run.
8.Transfer to a serving glass.
9.Sip it and dive into divine taste 🙂
You can replace palm sugar with sugar/honey
You can skip milk and add water for babies less than 1 year.
If you prepare for the entire family you can add ice cubes and serve.
You can also use frozen banana and sapota to have a chilled version.
For babies less than one year remove the black seedy part of banana before blending.
