Ginger Drink

Standard

I never use to have ginger drink right form childhood even after knowing the benefits of having ginger drink. But finally only when we face some problems we suddenly search of a remedy that to a natural remedy to relieve us or keep away from the problem.

This ginger drink helps and relives indigestion, cold. Ginger Drink is prepared in few version, but this one is the simple and good for kids, which is mild spicy. It’s not good to have this drink often, one can have it once in a month, perfect for adults to have in empty stomach and good for kids after a milk or coffee in morning. Also it’s enough for one to consume only ¼ cup (100 ml), so it’s good to have on weekends.

Dry Fruits Milkshake

Standard

 

Many of us like to dry fruits and milkshake now imagine about Dry fruits Milkshake that makes everyone drooling. Today I have prepared Mediterranean Omelet and Dry fruits Milkshake for breakfast, my kids loved it a lot.

As I have blogged few more milkshakes, I would say that this milkshake is different in texture. You can chew dates in this milkshake during drinking, if you do not want the chewy texture you could strain the milkshake and then serve.

Dry fruits milkshake is a healthy beverage as well a great energy supplement for anyone who wants a quick boost of energy. In addition, this is very rich in iron and calcium. This milkshake can also be prepared during fasting or vrat occasions. It is an ideal drink for growing up kids or for people looking for energy drinks.

I have used most of the dry fruits like almonds (badam), pistachios, cashews, raisins, dates and a pinch of saffron in this milkshake. You can include figs, but I have excluded and also you can increase or decrease the quantity of ingredients as per you taste. Let us move on to the recipe…
