Fresh Anjeer (Figs) Milk Shake.

Heat wave seems to be consuming India more and is probably indicative of an extremely hot summer …..… Here is “ Chilled Fresh Anjeer (Figs) Milk Shake Topped With Vanilla Ice Cream (Amul) And Chocolate Dessert Topping” ….... to keep you cool, hydrated and active ….

A milkshake is a sweet, cold beverage which is usually made from milk, ice cream, or iced milk, and flavorings or sweeteners and also sometimes topped with ice cream and some dessert toppings. A milk shake not only quenches one’s thirst but also fills the stomach. This summer, whip up your own frothy, frozen, creamy treats instead of heading to the local diner for a milkshake. These are very easy to make. 

I have added in fresh fruits to make it healthier and beneficial. Children sometimes are hesitant or throw tantrums in eating fruits and vegetables. The best method to see that they are nourished is including them in such a way that they are appealing and satisfying to them. Young and old all will enjoy this Anjeer milk shake when served chilled while the heat is too much too bear. It will not only cool them but will also nourish them with required supplements.

Wash 8-10 Fresh Anjeer / Figs and wipe them clean. Remove the stem portion and cut into into medium sized pieces. You can remove or retain the skin of the Anjeer. I have not removed the skin as there are always lots of Vitamins stored in the skin and near the skin portions of any fruit. 

Put the chopped anjeer pieces in a blender, add ½ cup of sugar, 1 cup of skimmed milk and blend to a smooth paste. Now add in 2-3 cups of skimmed milk and whipp well till a little bit frothy. Remove and put it in a vessel. Check the sugar content, if needed you can add in some more. But remember we are going to add vanilla ice cream and chocolate chopping which is also sweet. So add only if absolute necessary. Put the mixture in fridge to get chilled say for 2-3 hours. 

Remove from fridge and serve in a tall glass or any other glass of your choice. Add in 1-2 scoops of Vanilla Ice Cream on top of the Anjeer Milk Shake and Pour over some Chocolate Dessert Toppings and serve chilled.
