When I was on vacation this time, Abidha (Insightful Grace – unfortunately her blog is cancelled so is its FB and IG page. 🙁 ) was in Tirur for a staycation. Unfortunately, we couldn’t meet up. It is not easy to travel back home without anybody, especially people like us who are clueless of routes and places. The only day I got so close to where she stayed was the day before I traveled back, and they weren’t there at home. During our chat, she was lamenting over the Tang milkshake that she got in many of her husband’s relative houses. That is when I remembered that I had clicked this and kept it pending in my draft since really long. She literally hated drinking it, while I reminded her that we eagerly wait for somebody to serve this for us. 😀
I have no clue who invented this ludicrous milkshake! Tang was something that is a part and parcel of every Gulf going Malabari’s luggage in the yester-years. Not that it has lost charm now, but before it was in so much demand, so that when guests come, they would be served with a glass of sickeningly sweet Tang – and I mean it! I even can’t remember from where I had this first, but I truly love this drink! Ice cold water with some milk powder and Tang, blend till frothy and served immediately… It tastes amazing! Abidha may not have liked it, but I love it. However, I don’t have fans for this in the house, including my girls. They prefer plain Tang anytime. The only problem with this drink is that if not had immediately, then it becomes a curdly mess, which is still delicious to have, irrespective of how it looks. Off to this nostalgic no-brainer recipe…
- 2 cup cold water
- 2 heaped tbsp milk powder
- 2 heaped tbsp Tang powder
- 1 tsp sugar
- Blend all ingredients in the blender till smooth.
- Serve immediately.
This needs to be served immediately or else the drink splits.
If you don't have cold water, blend water with ice cubes and use. The liquid has to be cold.
