Badam Pista Milk Shake (Almond Pistachios Shake)

Need a quick Holi drink recipe that comes together in┬áno time and that can refresh your entire family? Let’s not wait┬áfurther. Well, IÔÇÖm here to tell you about a quick & refreshing Almond & Pistachios Milk Shake recipe, a┬áperfect serving on the occasion of HoliÔǪ.!!!!

I adapted this quick recipe from┬áfood.com website, I tweaked it a little as per my taste by adding cashews and reducing the condensed milk quantity┬áand I prepared this today itself for couple of my friends over a potluck Holi snacks party:). This milkshake was too refreshing, I served it chilled, best was my kid’s┬áloved it too!!

So let’s start….

Ingredients -

  • Full Cream Milk – 2 cups or little more
  • Condensed Milk – 2 tablespoons (optional, add 2 teaspoons Sugar if you plan not to add condensed milk)
  • Almonds – 1/2 cup
  • Pistachios – 20
  • Cashews – 10
  • Cardamom Powder – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Saffron Strands as needed
  • Rose Water – 2 drops
  • Ice Cubes – 6 -7 (crushed)

Method -

Soak almonds, pistachios and cashews in hot water, leave it for an hour. Now chop few almonds and pistachios, keep aside, this we will need for final garnishing of our drink.

After an hour, peel the almonds and in a blender blend the almonds,pistachios and cashews to a fine paste.

Now add to that paste in the blender milk, cardamom powder, condensed milk, rose-water and ice and blend again. Keep blending till well mixed, give it a taste to check the texture, then blend in additional milk or condensed milk until the texture is perfectly suited to your taste. Serve this milkshake garnished with the chopped almonds and pistachios, top it with few saffron strands.

Serve chilled and enjoy this heavenly refreshing drink with your loved ones this Holi!!

Yeah true, if I would have added whole black pepper,fennel,watermelon & poppy seeds to it. But then my kids would have not liked it hence kept it simple this way….chilled was too refreshing!!!!
