Who does not like the beautiful strawberries? I have this uncontrollable love for them, so I buy them almost every time I go for shopping. As far as I have seen, they have pretty short shelf life compared to any other fruits. So if I forget them for a while, I have to throw the entire stock. That happened a couple of times. So this time as soon as I bought them, I made this delicious milkshake for dinner. Yes, dinner :).
My touch to this simple milkshake was a generous amount of cardamom powder. I was not sure how it would work out. It was just out of the world. Now I know what to do with remaining strawberries.
2 cups cold milk
1 tbl spn sugar(change according to taste)
1/8 tea spn freshly powdered cardamom
In a blender, take strawberries, milk and sugar. Blend it for couple of minutes. Now add cardamom and mix.
Serves : 2
Preparation time : 2mins

Shilpa: Ujwal, I have a kuvvale sasam recipe with me with buttermilk in it. I am not sure if that is the one you are talking about. I found it in a Kannada weekly and they have mentioned it is Udupi Brahmin special. Will post it soon. Let me know if that is not what you are talking about.

I like your idea of adding cardamom pd to the milk shake.

Strawberries are my fav too…. I like that you have added cardamom..interesting..Beautiful pic….
Love the idea of adding cardamom! 🙂
Lovely, I add more strawberries to mine for a stronger flavour and colour!
I also like strawberry yoghurt. I just take some strawberries and pulse it along with some sugar for a couple of seconds in the mixie. Add it to thick curs and mix well. Serve chilled. Trust me it’s out of this world.
I meant CURDS!!
I finally made your date-cake this weekend. I reduced the sugar to 1/2 C and oil to 3 T and used about 3-4 T of apple sauce. It was fabulous. I know I’ll be making it again and again. Thanks to you and your aunt for this recipe.
I love that photo Shilpa! And I too have tried strawberries with cardamom…very good (it is my favorite of all spices!)
I added few more of strawberries, 1 more spoon sugar. Left it as it is. Later I mashed the strawberries and sieved them into cold milk.
Hey I missed this post! 🙁 The strawberry shake looks great, loved your glass n how cutely that lovely red strawberry has been arranged on glass!!! 🙂 Elaichi is new addition,shl try for sure (both kids r on strike with eating sb,so shakes r the only way to make them have!) tks for sharing..
The milkshake looks yummy….Try adding little bit of honey and u can reduce sugar…it tastes good too…
add a scoopof strawberry icecream to make it more tasty
I was wondering if I could replace sugar by honey to make it more healthy??
will it taste good too??
Shilpa: Give it a try.
You can add about half a banana to the milkshake to give it the thickness. I like it without the cardamom…
It looks very tasty. I will try to make this cocktail at the weekend. Thank you for sharing!
This one of the site I love to go thru.. every time I visit your site I get something different to try.. 🙂 And every thing I tried from here was big hit in the family 🙂
Thought of adding a note..Strawberry jam is very easy to make if you have lots of strawberry left out .. I have tried this couple of time. first time I looked at http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/strawberryjam_90294 recipe. I usually add one or two cloves as well…
