Cucumber Milkshake

If you have been following my blog since long, you will know that on the tenth of every month, we run the Muslim Food Blogger Challenge. Last year, we all decided we will take breaks for months where participation will be expected to be minimal. Accordingly, we took a break from posting last month, due to Ramadan and Eid. We are back this month with a very simple theme, which will be followed by another two months of break, due to school closures, holidays, travelling, etc. When that happens, the blog is always the last thing in mind. πŸ™‚

 

So this month, the theme chosen was “Refreshing Drinks”. We have a bunch of bloggers living all around the world, so instead of concentrating on hot or cold, we allowed them to choose and make something that goes with the weather in their particular country. Since UAE is on a hot spree – yes, it is summers with temperatures close to 50 degrees, better not talk about humidity – I chose a cold drink. No points for guessing that. πŸ™‚

 

Would you imagine cucumber in a sweet drink? I have made cucumber savory lassi sometime back, but I would have never thought of making it into a milkshake, hadn’t I seen a post on one of the FB groups during Ramadan. I had been very intrigued and hence decided to make it the same day for Iftar. HD and B really loved it. They actually couldn’t guess it was cucumber. They were quite surprised when I said it to them. The cardamom and vanilla does the trick to camouflage the cucumber in the drink. Off to the recipe…
