Dry Fruits Milkshake

Dry Fruits and Nuts Milkshake

I tried to make this dry fruits and nuts milkshake with ice cream to satisfy my carving for Fruit Shop's (on Greams road, Chennai) Jughead special. Thought not exactly the same one as I am not sure what gets into Jughead special, the one I tried was a bit similar to it in taste and texture.

Ingredients: Quantity
Almonds (Soaked and peeled) 5-6 nos
Cashew 3-5 nos
Pistachios (shells and skin peeled) 3-4 nos
Walnuts (shells and skin peeled) (optional) 1-2 nos
Raisins 3-4 nos
Dates Deseeded 2-3 nos
Dried Figs 1-2 nos
Sugar/honey (optional)* 1-2 tsp
Milk 1 cup
Ice Cream (Preferably Vanilla) 1-2 scoops
Crushed Ice(optional) 3-4 tbsp

1) Add 1/4 cup milk and all the nuts and dry fruits and blend into a paste (Not very coarse or not super fine).
2) Add the remaining milk and blend for a couple of seconds.
3) Add the ice cream and crushed ice (if using) and just pulse it to blend well.
4) This holds good into a large serving cup. Serve chill.

Note: * You need not use sugar/honey. The dry fruits and ice cream add enough sweet taste to the milkshake.
** You can use all the nuts and dry fruits or just mix and match of your own choice.
*** You can add different flavors like cardamom powder or saffron soaked in milk.
**** You can use almond milk instead of milk.
