Badam Shake Ingredients
Almonds or Badam
I prefer to use blanched and peeled almonds especially during summer. Raw badam has warming properties so when making almond shake during hotter months I suggest you blanch, peel and discard the skin. Along with almonds you can use a small pinch of badam mix or milk masala powder for flavor. I have not used it now though.
Which Milk To Use?
I have used skimmed dairy milk in this recipe. Boiled and chilled milk works best. You can also use frozen milk. For vegan badam shake you can use almond milk or any dairy free milk.
To flavor the milk shake you can use pure almond extract and vanilla extract. The flavor of vanilla is very good in this shake.
For sweetener I have used organic cane sugar
Ice Cream- To Add Or Not?
For any milkshake, ice cream adds rich taste ans texture. So if you are making this badam shake for guests or some special occasion you can add almond or vanilla ice cream. However if you are making this almond milkshake for toddlers and kids regularly then just almonds, milk and sweetener will do. You can add a small amount of fresh cream if you prefer.
How To Make Badam Shake Step by Step
Boil and chill the milk for 3-4 hours.
Blanch 15 almonds for 5 minutes in hot water. Peel and discard the skin.
Take peeled almonds, sugar and vanilla in a mixer jar. Add 1/4 cup milk and blend to a smooth paste.
Add ice cream, remaining milk and blend again until smooth and frothy.
Serve badam shake topped with ice cream immediately.
Almond Milkshake Variations
Without Ice Cream
Just follow the recipe as mentioned leaving out ice cream. Instead of ice cream you can also add 2 tablespoons whipped cream or fresh creamy, for creamy texture.
With Custard Powder
Mix 2 teaspoons custard powder in 1/4 cup water and add to the 2 cups milk. Stir continuously make a thin custard. Chill this custard and use it in place for milk for making almond milkshake.
