Orange Milk shake

I am big on milk shakes. Give me coffee, strawberry or even rose milk and I am a happy camper. The orange one was introduced when I was young by a very close family friend. The one from whom I had the pineapple upside down cake. A lot of her cooking and dishes have inspired me and this post is dedicated to her. This is quite an easy drink and a no brainer. However, I decided to write about it because if you are like me, you will be inspired to try something long forgotten and revive old memories or share it with friends and create a memory.

  You will love the burst of orangy zest in the milk. It will get you all refreshed.  A glass of the shake in the morning and a toast will do just fine and keep you in an active zing zangy mood all day. 


Ingredients:
Frozen Orange concentrate - 2 scoops
Sugar - to taste
Milk - 3/4 of a glass

Method:

Whip all the ingredients together. The only thing to remember is when you do an orange milk shake always make sure milk and orange are all cold. If not, it will curdle. Garnish with fresh cream and a piece of orange or like you see in the pictures on however your imagination leads you. Enjoy!

  35. A 2 Z Veg: - I bought minute maid old fashioned orange concentrate. If you want to make from scratch take juice from fresh oranges. I prefer leaving peeled orange either in the refrigerator or freezer and before making your shake blen it and add cold milk to it. The key for this shake is to keep everything very cold or else like someone had mentioned it will curdle..

    Priya..I above answers your question too

    Shabs - You are right orange will curdle the milk. To get around it is to keep everything very cold. That will keep it together and its yum :)

    Abhilash - You are right... but not all people want their names published. However, I will check and have her name known if she agrees.

    Enjoyed reading all your comments and we request you keep them coming..

  37. Namitha...regarding meringue powder,its optional,u can try without that..meringue powder will stabilize the cream and form a nice crust...
