Caramel Almond Milk Shake
Really loved this shake. Quick to make and has a lingering flavour. Made this shake for breakfast today. I have split this recipe into 2 parts, so that it will be easy to follow. Do try and enjoy with your family.
Ingredients ( To make the sugar caramel) Part 1 ( Caramel Syrup )
Sugar – 6 tablespoons
Water – 1/4 cup
Heat a thick bottomed metal ( Hindalium ) pan. Add the sugar. Keep the pan on the small gas burner. Do not stir the sugar. Leave it. Slowly the sugar will melt and caramelise to a golden colour. Now sim the flame and pour the water slowly from the side of the pan. Hold the water cup with a tong to avoid the heat from the burner. After pouring the water stir gently with a long handled stainless steel ladle. Let the sugar mix boil for 3 minutes on high flame. Switch off the stove. Transfer the caramel to a bowl. Cool.
Ingredients ( To make the shake ) Part – 2
Boiled, chilled thick milk – 6 cups
Condensed milk – 1 tablespoon
Milk powder – 1 tablespoon
Powdered almonds – 2 tablespoons( powder with the skin )
Caramel syrup – the quantity mentioned above
Take a big mixie jar ( blender jar ). Pour in all the above mentioned ingredients. Cover the blender. Blend it on high speed for 3 minutes. Pour the Almond Caramel Milkshake in tall glasses or glass jars and serve.
1) Can store the caramel syrup in the normal fridge compartment for 3 to 4 days.
2) If using a non stick pan to make the caramel, use a wooden spatula to mix the sugar. Do not use a plastic spatula. It will melt.
3) Do not stir the sugar in the pan. It will become crumbly and will be difficult to melt. Once it melts fully and bubbles, then pour the water very, very carefully from the sides of the pan. Take care not to burn your hands. Use oven mitts while stirring the sugar.
