Its the season of strawberries, the red luscious fruit is loved by all. Mostly consumed as a fruit, it is also used in desserts, cakes and toppings. It gives a wonderful taste to cold beverages. Strawberry milkshake is a favourite drink to enjoy in this season.
Here is a healthy twist to the usual milkshake. There is no added sugar and the milk used is low fat. I usually blend my milkshakes with a scoop or two of ice cream but avoided it here. Thus, this low fat milkshake is ideal to be consumed by all weight watchers.
Strawberry is nutritional packed, it is rich in anti oxidants and polyphenols. It also has nutrients, vitamins and minerals as manganese, Vitamin C,folate, potassium , dietary fibre and magnesium.
