Carrot Raisin Milkshake




Wishing all my friends, a very Happy Tamil New Year and a Happy Vishu!

The magic ingredients for this month’s Magic Mingle were Carrots and Raisins. The first recipe that came immediately to my mind was the Carrot and Raisin salad which I had bookmarked to try for a long time. But somehow, I was unable to prepare it and in the last moment came up with this delicious and healthy milkshake. This filling milkshake can be served for a nutritious and fulfilling breakfast or as a healthy afterschool snack. It tastes best when served chilled. So let’s beat the summer’s heat with this wholesome milkshake.



What you’ll need
  1. Milk – 500 ml, boiled and chilled
  2. Carrots – 3 Medium
  3. Raisins – 1 fistful
  4. Oats – 1 tbsp
  5. Honey/sugar – as required

Method
  1. Soak raisin in water for an hour.
  2. Peel and roughly chop carrots. Steam them. Let it cool.
  3. Blend the carrots, raisins, and oats by adding milk little at a time, to a smooth paste.
  4. Sweeten with honey or sugar according to your taste.

Pour into glasses and serve chilled.
