Carrot Milkshake Recipe

Carrot Milkshake – a healthy milkshake for kids, a summer special beverage to beat the heat.
carrots are an ultimate super food, they nourish and rejuvenate the body. The benefits of consuming them regularly are immense since they are high in antioxidants, beta carotene, vitamin A and many other nutrients.

carrot smoothie for kids

This healthy carrot milkshake tastes delicious and is one of the best summer coolers. Since kids like variety or change, i try making different smoothies or milkshakes and this is one of the most loved.

To make this milkshake, i have not cooked or steamed the carrots. Just added it to boiling milk and switched off the stove. They get partially cooked when added to boiling milk. I have also used soaked almonds to add taste, nutrition and thickness. Adjust the quantity of almonds to suit your taste.

This milkshake can also be made using raw or steamed carrots, milk and nuts. But the recipe shared here yields a delicious shake since the milk is simmered for a while.

How to Make Carrot Milkshake

1. Soak almonds for about 4 hours in clean water.

2. Bring milk to a boil.

3. While the milk boils, peel off the almond skin. Wash and peel carrots. Slice them as thin as possible. Set these aside.

4. When the milk comes to a boil, lower the flame and add sugar.

5. Continue to boil till the milk thickens or reduces a bit. I prefer to simmer for about 5 minutes in a wide pan. This adds taste to the milkshake.

6. Add almonds, carrots and green cardamom powder. I added whole cardamoms, but powder blends well with the shake. Switch off the stove. We are not cooking further.

7. Cover and set aside for the milk to cool down. For quick cooling, you can transfer  this to a bowl and refrigerate.
