Chikoo Milkshake

Sapodilla also known as sapote or chikoo is rich in vitamins, minerals and many health benefiting antioxidants. It is rich in dietary fiber and helps to relieve constipation. It contains antioxidant vitamins like vitamin C and vitamin A which helps to protect against certain types of cancer. This milkshake needs only 3 ingredients and is super easy to prepare. You won't be able to have just one glass!! Today we will learn how to make sapote/sapodilla milkshake following this easy recipe.

  16. Oh Padhu... the hit is your presentation always!! the fotos are too good!.. and then of course the recipe..

    One suggestion, instead of blending all and then chilling it, try blending fresh fruit and the other ingredient with frozen milk and have it with the fresh goodness of sapodilla.

    I never added honey before.. will try that.. nutritious shake!

  50. My aunt had a large chikoo tree at her backyard and during summer we used to pick the fruits and eat them all, if half ripen... She will always be at our back asking us not eat those half ripen ones, cos they give stomach pain... My fav fruit, unfortunately we dont get them here... I truely envy you... Milkshake makes me long now!!!
