Apple milkshake recipe with step by step photos – easy and a quick healthy beverage.
During fasting, we always have fruit or fruit based drinks, juices or milkshakes in our diet. Since most of the fasting food is carb loaded, it gets essential to balance the diet and include food with proteins and vitamins-minerals.
For this reason, I include amaranth grains, amaranth flour, barnyard millet and buckwheat in our fasting menu. I also use sabudana (tapioca pearls) during fasting. Potatoes is a favorite with us, so I do include it at times in our meals. On regular days also we have fruits, but during fasting I increase the quantity as we only have one or two fasting meals a day.
Fruit based milkshakes are a good way to have proteins as well as essential vitamins during fasting. Plus they are quick and easy to prepare.
In this recipe, I have added cinnamon powder. But if you don’t use cinnamon powder during fasting, then skip it entirely. Always serve milkshakes fresh and don’t refrigerate them to be served later. The freshness goes away and the taste also changes.
Here I used organic kinnaur apples from himachal pradesh. I always buy these apples as they are not wax coated. The very shiny and glossy looking apples are wax coated. So do check the apples before buying.
If you do not get organic apples, then you can use regular apples. Soak the apples in water in which some vinegar has been mixed. Soak for 15 to 20 minutes and then thoroughly rinse the apples. Use 1 tablespoon vinegar for 1 cup water.
