Watermelon-Melon Milkshake | Easy Milkshake Recipes

I am home now and amma is churning out (sometimes, quite literally!) different things to eat and drink every meal time. Yesterday around noon, we were feeling a bit peckish so she made this quick milkshake which was delicious and so much nicer than eating the fruits plain. 
My sis was a most obliging model for this pic, few seconds before we all downed the milkshake. You can make this in under 10 mins - all you need is some melon, chilled milk and a mixie or blender.

When making milkshake, choose ripe fruits. These tasted fabulous just as they are too - sweet and juicy.
Another important component is milk. It has to be chilled and preferably whole fat, not the skim or low fat kind, although you can use what you want and have in hand. Amma gets milk from a home that raises their own cows and extracts the cream out of it so all the milk we use at home is naturally lower in fat, yet creamy.

1. Blend the cubed fruits together until smooth. No need to add water since the water content in both the melons is quite high. 2. Add in the chilled milk and sugar. Mix together well. 3. Pour into glasses and serve immediately.
