Everybody loves this in my family. Climate is so hot nowadays in Chennai. Vacation has started, kids are at home. I am so tired nowadays managing all the time both of them. Janani will be busy with her books most of the time, she loves to read, but little demon won't allow her to read and he will trouble her a lot. He has a lots of energy, not even a single minute he will sit quiet. Janani likes to have milk shakes instead of the same complan or bournvita in the evenings. So i have to make some milk shakes for them daily. My father used to make milk shakes with some twist in that, he used to add some tang orange powder with shakes, it really taste awesome..

In Delhi, i have tasted mango milk shake with aam Papad and cashews it, tastes awesome. I am waiting to go there and have that awesome drink and observe the ingredients and make in home.
