Theme : A-Z recipes – Something sweet
My initial plan for today’s post was to make jaggery dosa. It’s an instant dosa made with wheat flour. It was one of my favorite “after school” food. My grand ma used to make it with ghee and the jaggery dosa would look like chocolate crepe. It was so delicious and my mouth is watering just visiting the memories! The jaggery here in US is light brown the dosa doesn’t look like the one I grew up eating. So it’s been a real long time since I made it.
So coming back to the recipe here, I made this jam milkshake as a way to use up some leftover heavy cream and jam. I took a picture of it before I served it and that came handy for today’s letter ‘J’. The milkshake was really delicious and very filling too. I have never used heavy cream in a milkshake but I won’t hesitate to use it once in awhile. I had read somewhere that you can use heavy cream in place for ice cream if you don’t have any, so I decided to try it. I loved how much more creamier the shake was because of it.
You can add any kind of jam here. Depending on the sweetness of jam, you can add or skip the sugar. I used raspberry preserves which was a little tart, so I added sugar to balance it.
Read on for the recipe.
- 1 1/2 cups cold milk
- 1/2 cup heavy cream or ice cream
- 2-3 tablespoons jam of your choice
- 2 tablespoons sugar, optional
- Blend everything together until the milkshake is well combined and a little thick.
- Pour into two glasses and drink. You can add some jam to the sides of the glass for a colorful look.
