Strawberry Milkshake – Milkshake Recipes

June 5, 2018 DrinksSummer Special  One comment

Strawberry is not a fruit that I fancy eating much, just because they are sour most of the times. But love the look and flavour of it. So always transform the fruit into a sorbet or popsicle as I have already done. This season made a simple Strawberry Milkshake which is a very easy & yummy milkshake with very few ingredients. This is a thick and creamier milkshake as I have used ice cream as well. U can skip the ice cream if u dont prefer it. Also made Strawberry Ice Cream, recipe coming soon πŸ™‚

Adai is always welcome at home. This Godhuma Rava Adai is fully packed with fibre and protein. We are not using rice in this recipe. I always find it as an easy option too, as it is a quick fix recipe for breakfast or dinner. All u need to plan is the soaking time. Usually it is made with rice, chana dal & toor dal.

So thought of sharing it as a post here πŸ™‚ Wheat Rava/Godhuma Rava/Dalia however u call it, is the HERO of this recipe. It is a totally guilt free adai and keeps us full too.
