Top 8 Fruity Milkshakes For A Refreshing Spring Season

With the commencement of the spring season, the eating habits of people change from warm and comforting dishes to light and refreshing food. This is the time of year when the market starts bursting with ripe flavours of fruits like strawberries, papaya, pineapple, grapes, watermelon and mangoes.   

Each region in India has special varieties of spring-season food and all the fresh produce is loaded with plenty of nutrients, including antioxidants, minerals and flavonoids. Most fruits are consumed on their own, sometimes as juice, salads or desserts. But if you are looking for an interesting way to add fruits to your diet, combine them with milk and transform them into delicious milkshakes.  

Milkshakes are traditionally prepared by blending milk and ice cream with flavourings such as butterscotch, caramel or chocolate. But the addition of spring fruits to the recipe will make the drink an amazing source of instant energy due to the presence of carbohydrates, protein and fats in the ingredients.
