THE milkshake

If you're looking for the most refreshing way to finish off all those fruit piling up in your refrigerator, well this is it! Our church fundraisers sell boxes of yummalicious mangoes which are perfect the first couple of days but need to be put away real quick. Here's my fool proof milk shake recipe that can be adapted to just about any fruit imaginable. The trick is to use frozen milk, yes, as in a big honking chunk of milky ice! A trick I learned from a small juice shack in Madras, it makes the milkshake thick and creamy even if you're using skim milk! Nobody will know...promise! You can either freeze the milk in small ziploc bags or in multiple ice trays. If following the ziploc method, do your blender a favor and break the ice into pieces. Those of you lucky enough to be in India should try it with either custard apple or chickoo mixed with bournvita (tastes just like the best chocolate milk shake in the world but much more nutritious).

You will need:

2 cups of (skim/whole) milk FROZEN (do your blender a favor and break the ice up into small pieces)
2 cups chopped fresh fruit of choice
Sugar to taste (optional)

Blend first two ingredients together. Taste and add more sugar (if needed), mix again to incorporate sugar.
