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.

How to make apple milkshake

Apple milkshake has been the recent addition to my list. It is one of the tastiest and healthiest drinks that one can slurp in the mornings. I don’t know why I had not tried earlier.

Apples are available all round the year and one can easily manage with it. It is thick, foamy and filling. Do not peel the skin of apples, just cut it into small pieces and pulse it, it blends well with the pulp and milk.

banana and fig milkshake

Bananas are an wonderful fruit, those reading me will know that I cherish this humble fruit. It’s packed with nutrition and the one fruit liked by all at home. It is available all round the year unlike other fruits. But there are times, when this fruit goes unused. I use it along with figs for a nutritious packed drink.

I love making milkshakes. These are delicious and loved by all ages. You can substitute the ingredients accordingly.
Banana and fig milkshake is a tasty and healthy drink. It is ideal for kids who do not have breakfast in the mornings. I have used fresh figs here. Figs are rich in natural sugar, minerals and solution fibre. It consists of minerals such as potassium, calcium , magnesium, iron and copper along with Vitamin A and E. Thus , the blending of these two fruits makes it a healthy drink.

This is an ideal way for fussy kids who do not eat figs.
