Sometimes all we need is some refreshing creamy drink to soothe the restless soul. I was literally craving some drink of that kind on a busy and tiring afternoon and all I found was a bunch of black muscat grapes inside the refrigerator. I wasn't sure how a grape milkshake would taste and I knew how the acid from grapes would churn the milk into curd, but then I had no other option. I have already had experiences making citrus fruit shakes (check out my orange milkshake here) so I willingly gave a try with what I had at hand. Cold milk (really very cold) does not get curdled and that's the only tip I made use of. To make it more creamier I used some fresh cream and the end result was too good. You can use ice-cream instead and enjoy the frothy smooth drink.
INGREDIENTSMakes drink for two
Total Preparation Time - 5 minutes
- Grapes - 100 grams (Reduce or increase as per your likeness)
- Chilled Milk - 250 ml (boiled and chilled)
- Fresh cream - 100 ml (Chilled; I used low fat)
- Sugar - As required
- Wash grapes well in water. Drain off excess water and pick the berries alone.
- Add them into a blender and blend for a few minutes. Sieve the seeds and discard them. Now add this grape puree, cold milk, chilled cream and powdered sugar into a blender and blend until the drink is smooth and creamy!!
- Serve immediately.
TIP 1: If you do not like the sharp taste you can boil the grapes until it turns soft then cool it down, make puree and use it in the shake.
TIP 2: Use nicely cold milk to avoid curdling. Not even room temperature is okay here.
