Super Strawberry Shake with Ice Cream

“A scoop of ice cream is pure heaven in the sizzling summer. Verka Ice Creams come in a vast range of flavours from the seasonal to the classic. Can you improve upon such a perfect ice cream? Yes indeed you can! Marry it to fresh, ruby red strawberries, whip up a nourishing milkshake and crown it with a gleaming sphere of Verka Ice Cream! Unlike the fast food shakes, this is neither fake flavoured nor dyed pink!”

 

Super Strawberry Shake with Ice Cream:

  • 1 pack strawberries (200-230 gm)
  • 2 tbsp Verka Milk Powder
  • 1½-2 tbsp honey (or sugar)
  • 1 cup Verka Milk
  • 4 scoops Verka Strawberry Ice Cream
  • ½ tsp vanilla essence

 

Method:

  • Hull (remove stem and woody base) the washed strawberries, then chop roughly, keeping aside 1-2 for garnish.
  • Drizzle the berries with honey and keep in freezer for 20 minutes.
  • Make a paste of the Verka Milk Powder, using a little bit of the milk.
  • In a blender-jar, whip the strawberries, Verka milk, Verka Ice Cream, milk powder paste and vanilla. Blend till smooth.
  • Pour into pretty glasses, then gently float another scoop of Verka Ice Cream on top of each glass.
  • Garnish with a sliced strawberry and a sprig of mint. Slurp away!

 

Note: Verka Milk Powder adds depth and thickness to the drink. The strawberries are coated with honey to draw out their juice and flavour. This process is called maceration. Adding ice results in a watery shake. To avoid that, keep all ingredients as chilled as possible. Then you will not need ice.
