Carrot Orange Juice – Carrot Juice

June 7, 2017 DrinksSummer Special  One comment

Fresh juices, ice creams & milkshakes are the need of the hour now. Especially in Chennai, the heat waves have not gone down yet. This Carrot Orange Juice is an easy and refreshing juice to beat the heat. Chotu is a big fan of orange juice. Any sort of fizzy/aerated drink is a big NO at home. Chotu does not like them either. Not much fancy ingredients are needed here. So enjoy this simple and refreshing drink. Check my other summer treats HERE!

Homemade Rosemilk – With Homemade Rose Syrup

April 27, 2017 DrinksSummer Special  4 comments

Rosemilk brings back a lot of childhood memories. We used to make Rosemilk with Roohafza syrup. Am not sure if that is still available in the market. As a child, I thought that was Homemade Rosemilk. Trust me, making Rose Syrup at home is not a big deal. Moreover it does not contain any preservatives, making it a much better option than the store bought ones. I made Rosemilk Popsicles earlier. U can make this Rosemilk and pour it in popsicle moulds and enjoy too. If u ask me, I would not be patient enough to let it freeze and would simply slurp it with a straw 🙂

Mango Milkshake is one of the most popular milkshakes. We do not get good varieties of mangoes here. This time happened to get a very sweet and yummy batch of Kesar Mangoes from the Indian shop. The mangoes were really very juice and soft to handle. We enjoyed a couple of mangoes as is, some went into the Mango Icecream and the rest in this Mango Milkshake. This is a simple, thick and creamy milkshake recipe, perfect for the summer and season!!

Muskmelon Smoothie – Cantaloupe Smoothie

June 9, 2015 DrinksSummer Special  8 comments

Muskmelon or canataloupe or khirni pazham (in tamil) is a refreshing fruit, perfectly hydrating for the summer. I can have this as is, but Chotu is such a fussy eater especially when it comes to fruits. This Muskmelon Smoothie is yet another successful attempt 

I still remember those young days, when we used to dry the seeds in the sun and eat it. Due to less sunlight here, I just discarded them 

So here u go with a simple and truly exhilarating drink, and if u are a fussy person like Chotu this is for you
