Chocolate Shake

chocolate milk shake
I love chocolate shake. In fact its one thing I ALWAYS order when we dine out.
A year back we went to this place in Cochin and asked for my fav chocolate shake. For the first time I actually saw and realized that they just used frozen milk packets directly and not boiled and cooled milk.
That sort of ended my love affair with these slurrpy delights.


Making a thick frothy chocolate shake at home is so incredibly simple and utterly delicious. Just make sure that you have your supplies ready, and keep them frozen or chilled until you need them.

If you delight in all things chocolate, as I do, you will love this recipe.

1 cup milk
1 cup chocolate ice cream
3 tbsp chocolate syrup.

Blend all the ingredients in a blender until smooth and thick. For thicker shakes, use more ice cream and less milk and just the opposite if you want a thinner party drink.

My oldest son too is an avid milk,chocolate and shake lover (in that order) and i dedicate this recipe to him. I hope to keep preparing more stuff that he loves.
Since MILK does for the basis for this recipe off this goes to the FIL event!This months ingredient is MILK(as u well guessed) and hosted by sanghi.

Ah! Rose…

Rose Laban

The word rose always conjures up images of my visit to Madras..oops Chennai a million years ago. My family had some luggage to collect (we were moving back to India from Damascus) and we ended up staying there for almost a month. I remember we stayed at some hotel with lots of palm trees. Madras is notorious for its rains, and we found ourselves in the midst of the incessant rains. I remember waking up one morning to find all our stuff floating in water INSIDE our room.i mean the entire hotel was flooded but apparently THAT was a normal occurance. Whew!! The roads were flooded…it was like nothing, NOTHING I’d ever seen before.

Anyway, since it was just my sister and I in the room most of the times we kept ordering for room service. Finally
they posted one of the waiters to stand outside our room at all times. We stayed for a few weeks and the poor guy was there the whole time. Serious! This actually happened. And more often than not we kept ordering the rose milk. It was out-of-the world! Anyway I’m a Libran (it’s actually anyone’s guess as I exhibit almost ALL traits of one) so when I realized my colour for the event was pink I could think of nothing else. I am a new blooger and this is my first Food in Colour event the brainchild of sunshinemom. The thing about these events is that it throws up such wonderful opportunities to meet fellow-bloggers and get to read and see some ABSOLUTELY stunning blogs.

This months very creative Event Zodiac hosted by Ashwini requires one to match the zodiac sign with a colour and food.

I have prepared a very refreshing Arabic yogurt drink similar to rose milk. I adapted the recipe that I got from here.

Rose Laban

2 cups of whole-milk yogurt
2 tablespoons rose water
1/2 cup water
3 teaspoons sugar
1 drop red food coloring SLUURRPPPP

In a blender mix all the ingredients except the water. Now gradually add the water and blend until it gets to the consistency of your desire.

Serve chilled.
