Making this milkshake after a long time, as now strawberries are generally finished before I make a milkshake as my 2 kiddo’s love strawberries. I just sneaked in some to make this Strawberry milkshake for our monthly Blogging marathon in which I have chosen kid’s Delight drinks. In Blogging Marathon we a group of bloggers pick a minimum of 2 themes and blog each week for 3 days continuously. My earlier week was about Condiments, this one is about Kids-Delight, Drinks, so you will see 3 new Kid friendly Drinks. The first drink I prepared was Chocolate Oreo Milkshake.
Berries are loaded with loads and loads of nutrients. I have already mentioned about some health benefits of berries in my earlier post on 5 min Healthy Greek Yogurt Breakfast Bowls, so not going to add more to it. I like to keep my milkshake simple as I try to make it as healthier as possible and easy to make instead of some lengthy process.
This milkshake is a favorite of my family and is very simple to make. If you have loads of strawberries and do not know what to make, just puree them and store it in a jar in refrigerator or in cubes in freezer. Whenever needed just defrost it and use. Even defrosting is not needed as you can blend the strawberry cubes in a blender along with milk to get chilled milkshake.
Now comes do we need to add sugar or no. It’s a personal choice and also depends on the sweetness of the strawberries. I have not added any sugar in this one and actually at times I do not even realize I have not added sugar as the sweetness comes from the fruit. Natural sugars are better than the processed ones. I generally take it as is, but sometimes add like half a teaspoon per glass for my family.
So here goes the recipe:
- 2 Cups Cold Milk
- 1 Cup of Strawberries.
- Wash the Strawberries nicely in clean water.
- Remove the green stem and roughly chop the strawberries. Chopping is optional if you have a good blender.
- First blend the strawberries with 1/4 cup of milk. If using sugar do add it at this step.
- Decorate the side’s of glass with some puree.
- Then add the remaining milk and give it a quick mix. One can add some Ice cubes if required.
- That’s it, Strawberry milkshake is ready.
