Milkshake is a cold drink made with milk, fruit or other ingredients, such as chocolate and sugar or other sweetening such as honey or syrup.  

It is processed in a blender until the fruit are pureed and becomes a frothy drink.

For a richer milkshake, you can also add ice cream or whipped cream.

When my children were younger, they didn’t eat a lot of fruit except for my daughter.

The boys were rather lazy to wash and peel fruit to eat, and would only eat fruit such as bananas or other fruit which were washed and ready to eat, such as grapes, strawberry, stone fruit etc.

So I had to peel them to get them to eat some.

What they liked very much was milkshakes and sometimes instead of giving them plain fruit to eat I prepared them a milk shake.

How to make a homemade Milkshake:

You will need:

A blender

Tall Glasses

Straws

A spoon

A hand mixer (for the whipped cream)

Prepare the whipped cream and refrigerate.

Peel and cut the fruit of your choice into large chunks.  If using stone fruit, remove the stone.  If using fruit with seeds, remove the seeds.

Put them in the blender.

Add the sweetening of your preference:  sugar, honey, flavoured syrup, etc.

Add the milk and vanilla.

If it is very hot and you want the milkshake very cold, add a few ice cubes.

Add the lid on top.

Blend all the ingredients until frothy.

Pour your milkshake into a tall glass to serve.

It tastes great straight-up or topped with some ice cream and a tower of whipped cream, which, of course, means more calories!.

This is a way to serve some healthy fruit that nobody could refuse. Thanks for sharing the recipe, I am sure it would be great with strawberries or blueberries as well.

My kids like smoothies too. A lot. In the summer, I make those every day! I like your idea of reserving the cream and dairy as a topping.
