What Is Chikoo?

About The Recipe
Milkshakes are delectable and filling. When fruits are added to milkshake, they increase the nutrition and taste of the drink. Fruits bring natural sweetness and add flavour to the drink.
Chikoo Milkshake is thick, creamy and frothy. Perfect as mid-day snack or after school treat. Rather than adding ice cream, I add chilled milk to my milkshakes.
Chikoo is rich in nutrition and is an inexpensive fruit. You can mostly find chikoo in the months of May and June.
Apart from eating raw, chikoo is used to bring flavour and taste in many recipes like chikoo khulfi, chikoo kheer, chikoo shake, chikoo ice cream, chikoo halwa, etc.
Chikoo in the form of puree or porridge is mostly introduced to babies when they start on solids. Due to its sweet taste, babies will love to relish it.
Chilled Milkshake Recipes To Try
Love Milkshakes?? Then here are few most popular chilled milkshakes for you to try
Ingredients & Variations:
Chikoo: Use ripe and organic fruit. These are easily available in both online and offline fruit shops. I always store the ripe ones in fridge. Chilled fruits are best for milkshake.
Milk: I use skimmed milk. You can use full fat milk too. For making milkshake, always boil the milk and leave it to come down to room temperature. Then leave it in the fridge to chill. Chilled milk brings amazing taste in milkshake.
To make this vegan, use nut milk or oats milk or soya milk.
Sweetener: If using pala sapota, then you do not need to add any sweetener. But if you are using any other variety of chikoo, then you can sweeten your milkshake with sugar or honey or palm sugar or brown sugar or jaggery or dates or maple syrup.
You can use add chopped nuts like almonds or pistachio or walnuts as garnish. You can even add almond powder or chopped dates to the blender along with chikoo pieces and blend. This will bring rich taste in milkshake.
We had a big chikoo tree in our backyard and we children use to play under it during summers. We also use to make crafts using leaves of chikoo and we had a small bird house on it. Lying in hammock, listening to music, reading my favourite comic books and inhaling the sweet smell of chikoo tree is my favourite childhood memory. Nostalgic!!!
