Banana - Gooseberry Milkshake


My son always has loved milkshakes and even now he likes to be surprised by a new variety each time he drinks one. I see no problem in it as I see shakes/smoothies as a healthy way to serve milk and fruit to kids instead of offering junk food as snacks. Sometimes during time crunches, they can be a quick, filling breakfast too. I like to whip up new ones just keeping him in mind and this goose berry one was made at the spur of the moment since I happened to notice the gooseberry preserves bottle in the refrigerator while I was grabbing the milk can. Recently my husband got a bottle from IKEA and instantly we fell in love with it. The small sized, sweet bananas (the elakki balehannu kind) I used lend creaminess and sweetness to the shake. 
Milkshakes are hardly recipes. Just by the title, you can guess what went into a milkshake. Nonetheless here is what you need for this shake. For one serving - blend a cup of cold milk, 2 small bananas and 2 Tbsp gooseberry preserves. And a rich, creamy, nutritious drink is ready to enjoy.

That's so nice to know Suma. Wish my kids would try these milkshakes. They are at an age, where nothing other than chocolates appeal to them. Hopefully as they grow older they will develop taste for these...the milkshake sounds so good and healthy!

Wow, lot of interesting recipes in your blog. Milk shakes are very kids friendly. Please check if the high amount of Vit C in gooseberry would actually curdle the milk. I have become skeptical in adding milk to anything or anything else to milk. I have been reading that milk protein stops the absorption of many nutrients from fruits and ohter sources. Please validate this info since I dont have any proofs!
