Liquid Dreams!

Beverages are something that can tempt anybody. Especially it matters with what you serve it. Even my 6 yr kid prefers to be served in proper glass ware! This weekend she was after me to make her Milkshake. For almost two days, she was only uttering this statement. Where is my Milkshake? so finally got down getting it done. Was she happy! She just loved it so much that I felt bad in not getting it done sooner for her. My daughter is very particular in what she drinks. If its a juice or a drink it has to be served in its appropriate ware. So hubby dear has collected specifically for her tasty. Well that's their indulgence.

I made Strawberry Milkshake too along with Chocolate one for her.

Strawberry Milkshake

Ingredients needed:

Milk - 400 ml
Sugar - 3 tsp
Strawberry Syrup - 3 tbsp
Ice cubes
Strawberry or Vanilla Ice-cream - 3 scoops

Method to prepare:

Add sugar to the boiled Milk and mix well. Let it cool and refrigerate it for 2 - 3 hrs.

When you are ready to serve, take a mixer. Add 2 scoops of ice-cream, Strawberry syrup and chilled milk with ice cubes.

Run for few mins and remove to serve glass. Top it with one scoop of ice-cream. Fresh grated Strawberry can also be used for garnishing.

Traditional Butter Milk or Mor

Thick Curds / Yogurt - 2 tbsp
Chopped chillies - 1
Coriander - 1 spring
Ginger - 1/2 "
Salt to taste

Beat curds well till its smooth. Add all the other ingredients and let it rest for sometime. You can either strain it or drink it as such. This is the traditional way consumed in South India during Hot summer.
Tomato Juice

This is one drink that's very good for people who may want to reduce weight. Or if you want to skip breakfast. But ensure are you leisurely sipping this by atleast 15 minutes.

Ripe Tomatoes - 2 medium
Salt and pepper for taste.

Squeeze the tomatoes with hands along with Salt and pepper. Ensure the skin is mashed down properly. Add water and again mix well. This should not be strained. You can remove excess skin but its preferred to drink this as it is.

Seeds that remain in the bottom need not be consumed.

Drinking this slowly for 15 minutes ensures you don't feel hungry fast!


Since Meeta was asking us to send her anything that is served in a glass, sending this to her Monthly Mingle, this month's theme being Liquid Dreams!
