Mixed Fruit Milkshake | No Added Sugar


                                      Try and guess our latest post-dinner sweet treat and anytime snack.. Yes! Milkshake it is.. Take some fruits, make your husband chop them {Lol Kiddin!}, blend them smooth {esp if it is your brand new hand blender, i know how much fun the blending part is! 😉 } and gulp down glasses of fresh milkshake… Wait!! How many calories have you added on? Almost none.. And how many nutrients have you gained? Many to count.. So here is a fun mixed fruit milkshake for you to try.. The best part is all the fruits are combined such that you can for once forget the jar of sugar..

                                       It so happened that both of us were on a “fruit buying” spree and before we realized it, the kitchen looked like a fruit market.. 😀 So here came this not-so-incredible idea of juicing them up.. We usually make juice of only one kind of fruit which requires extra honey or sugar {which i feel is a huge let down and my hubby also likes all the pulp sieved out which is another negative in the health point of view}.. Finally this intelligent idea {at least we think so! ;)} crept in our brains to mix little of each fruit we have and check out how it would taste..

I also took out my notepad to check out how much of each fruit was added while my hubby happily chopped the fruits.. As he chopped, i took out my hand blender {Love it so much!} and started blending and clicking.. With each addition of fruit, the milkshake turned yummier and yummier.. Finally when all the clicking was over, we sat and gulped down the whole glass of “sugarless” milkshake {The fact that it was sugarless made it even more sweet! haha}..
We were truly amazed by the fact that the fruits themselves have so much sweetness in them that you really don’t require extra sugar at all.. Was so happy i had written down the measurements and clicked pics that a smile was on my face for the rest of the day.. Nowadays we buy loads of fruits and mix n match them to check out which combo tastes the best.. Healthy snacking time for us! You too try out and enjoy homemade milkshakes within minutes.. Happy and Healthy Cooking!!

  • Good you have discovered a great way of snacking ! I do make these shakes a lot, specially mixing those fruits which we usually dont eat with pleasure like Kiwis and Blueberries,. so that way we get to eat them without any fuss.. I usually add Soy milk to my smoothies just to keep myself lactose free for a day.

  • I love mixed fruit juices, but I haven’t tried milkshake yet. After reading your post I am tempted to try it. I feel mixed fruits gives out a unique and delicious flavor, the best mixed fruit juice I have had is KDD harvest. This is the only juice which has a balanced fruit flavours, all other have atleast one fruit dominating the taste. Thanks for sharing this recipe.. will be trying it out soon.
