Strawberry Almond Milkshake


          It's already very hot here in India, especially the afternoons, no longer do I feel like having hot coffee or tea, even kids want to have something cold. Milkshakes are the best, kids get their daily dose of milk, plus, when you add fruits and nuts to it, makes it even more nutritious. Since strawberries are now in season, I made this Strawberry Almond Milkshake, very easy to make and very delicious..

Need To Have

  • Strawberries - 15 small ones
  • Almonds - 8 
  • Cold Milk - 2 cups
  • Sugar - 2 teaspoons

Method


          Soak the almonds in hot water for 10 to 15 minutes, remove the skin and keep. Take the almonds, strawberries ( washed ), and sugar, blend smoothly, adding very little milk. Once you get a smooth paste, add the rest of the milk, blend it once more, serve cold.


Note
Can replace sugar with honey.
While grinding the almonds and strawberries, add as little milk as possible, then only you'll get a smooth paste.
The amount of sugar added depends on the sweetness of the strawberries.
