It's the 10th today, our Potluck Party day and what fabulous weather for us to enjoy the party ! Last three months have gone by, and our friend circle is getting bigger and bigger day by day. Everyone is having fun by bringing dishes, learning to make dishes from each other and just having a superb time.
It's hot, and it's good news for supermarkets as they are selling drinks and ice creams like hot cakes ! With the heatwave expected to continue for the rest of the week, so many things are in demand. People are stocking up on food and drinks to enjoy gorgeous weather reaching up to 30 degrees, that's hotter than Benidrom !
Because of the warm weather in the UK, I thought bringing Chilled Carrot Coconut Shake for my friends. I hope they like it. Few days back I went to my local temple for prayers and lady who distributes Prasad ( sacrament ) she gave me two whole coconut. I already had frozen coconut in my freezer, so was scratching my head what to do, then I made coconut milk from one half coconut and decided to make shake with it...fabulous and creamy shake, in this weather can't get enough of it !!!
You will need :-
- 1 cup shredded carrot
- 1 cup grated coconut
- 1/2 tsp ghee
- 2 cup milk ( any )
- 1 cup vanilla ice cream ( I used my homemade )
- 1-2 tbsp sugar
Heat ghee in non stick pan, add carrots and coconut.
Fry both things on a very low heat for about 3-4 minutes. ( take one tsp out for garnishing after frying it )
Add milk and sugar and let it cook for about 5-6 minutes.
Let it cool to room temperature.
Now blend this mixture in a grinder.
Strain it through a sieve and leave carrot and coconut mixture aside. ( see note where to use )
Leave carrot and coconut milk in a fridge for one hour or till you are ready to serve.
When ready to serve add vanilla ice cream into chilled milk, blend with hand mixture.
Serve in a tall serving glass and enjoy !
Note :- Use carrot and coconut mixture into make paratha, add in a chapatti flour with routine masala and make tasty and yummy paratha.
