Chikoo Choco Shake !

It was a very bad work week, too busy with projects – deliverables - assignments! So dinner wise it was worst week, five days out seven had to eat out – order – Maggi! Last week sometime, we also had our six month anniversary :P !! ( yeah me a bit cynical about these special days, as The Foodie says if asked to I can add every 365 days in my special days list :D)

But due to workloads I totally forgot about The Six Month Anniversary :( but Thanks to The Foodie there was this surprise on the bed when I returned from work. But alas, as always, I had neither gift nor time to make anything special for him.

So Me just browsed our normally overloaded but this time empty fridge. There were chocolates and fruits and some couple of days malai and cold Milk bass – So thought of making something different and ROYAL for The Foodie with these very items!

This again is something I tried impulsively – hence experimental dish! It dint take more than ten minutes.

You Need:

Chikoo – 3-4 in number – Peeled and Deseeded
Thick Cold Milk with loads of Malai
Sugar – couple of tbsp
Choclates – qty depending on you – smashed into small pieces and grated

You Do:

1.   Mix the chikoo pieces , Milk with malai and sugar – Grind it to make thick paste.

2.   Now just make layers of the paste and smashed pieces of chocolates – I made four thin layers.

(I had used the heavy nutty dark chocolate but if the chocolate is light layers can be thick and numbers of layers can be increased as to make the shake heavier)

3.   When done garnish with grated chocolate. Done ! =P~

We had it with Maggi – some ching noodles. We had single glass between both of us but it was too heavy and much thicker than any CCD – Barista Choco shakes :P

As Choclate being integral part of this Shake, me sending this to Hema for her CFK : Chocolate

Also sending this to Sireesha for her Soup 'N Juice Event.

Update ::
Sandhya has presented me with this beautiful Kreative Blogger Award, Thanks a lot Sandhya !!
