Strawberry Milkshake

Last weekend I had been on a family trip to Cameron Highlands , a beautiful hill station in Malaysia . Apart from its scenic beauty , Cameron Highlands is known for spectacular Tea plantations, Strawberry farms , Colorful flower gardens and fresh vegetables. We enjoyed the cool climate and munched on irresistible fresh juicy Strawberries . 

Back home we bought loads of fresh veggies and Strawberries. The fresh red strawberries were very sweet and juicy. So I made up my mind to try out some recipes using these berries. To begin with , I made a quick and simple milkshake.

Strawberry Milkshake is a cool and creamy drink which can be served at breakfast or as a reward after a workout ! It is not only a refreshing and energetic drink but also is a visual treat. The baby pink color of the strawberry shake can brighten up any lazy day. Specially kids love it. The recipe is very easy and requires just chilled milk , sugar and Strawberries. Quantity of sugar to be added depends on the sweetness of Strawberries. Select big and red strawberries which are sweet. 

Ingredients: Serves 2
  • 12-15  medium to large size Strawberries
  • Chilled low fat milk - 2 cups (1 cup - 200 ml)
  • Sugar - 3-4 tbsp (or as required)
  1. Rinse the Strawberries and drain. 
     2.  Remove the top green part of the Strawberries, this process is called hulling.

   3.   Roughly chop the Strawberries.

    4.  Add the chopped Strawberries to the mixer or blender along with chilled milk and sugar and blend until smooth  and creamy. Add sugar as per required. If the berries are sweet add less sugar and vice verse. Also make sure the milk is chilled or else there are chances of curdling of milk.

   5. Pour the Strawberry milk shake into 2 tall glasses and serve immediately . Alternatively you can also add some vanilla ice cream or strawberry ice cream in the blender to make Strawberry Ice cream Milkshake. 

  6. You can garnish the shake with some Strawberry chunks or enjoy it as it is.
