Milkshakes are certainly my favourite. I always prefer light breakfast in the morning possibly some thing to drink not wholesome solid foods like Idli or Dosa. Carrots can be found in supermarket all year-round. The carrot is a versatile vegetable and commonly eaten raw, steamed, boiled, roasted and as an ingredient in many soups, stews, gravies and even in some of the rice dishes.

 This is an easy to make, tasty milkshake which would be loved by both kids & adults alike barring any age difference. A colourful drink which goes well with any simple breakfast like pancakes, sandwiches or even a simple toast. The drink would sure make you feel full. Yet you'd still feel healthy and light. Carrots are a good source of nourishment to improve the skin tone too.

The antioxidant Beta-carotene, is that which gives carrots their bright orange color. Beta-carotene is absorbed in the intestine and converted into vitamin A during digestion. Carrots also contain fiber, vitamin K, potassium, folate, manganese, phosphorous, magnesium, vitamin E and zinc.

Carrot Milkshake

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Serves:2 glasses

Carrot-1 large (or) small-2
Boiled and chilled Milk- 1 and 1/2 cups
Chilled water-1/2 cup
Sugar- 1 tablespoon (or) Honey- 1 tablespoon


  • Boil and chill the milk well inside the refrigerator.
  • Peel the carrots and cut the top green portion (found in some carrots & would give a raw taste to the drink - advisable to avoid the same).
  • Cut the carrots roughly into smaller pieces.
  • Add the carrot pieces and grind it to make a coarse paste . Now add half a cup of water and grind well to make a fine paste.
  • Strain the juice; add half a cup of more chilled water and extract the juice again.(Do not add more water which eventually would dilute the milkshake)
  • Now add the extracted carrot juice on a juicer or blender jar with the sugar/honey and chilled milk.
  • Whip well till it becomes frothy. Serve chilled in glasses. Add ice cubes if desired.
  • You could make this milk shake in another way, by pulsing the carrot followed by grinding the carrots with a cup of water as a fine puree. Then add the puree as such in the juicer jar with sugar and milk.
  • Blend well and strain  the milk shake. Transfer the clear milkshake again in the juicer jar and whip till frothy and serve.
  • Note: Staining process removes the fibre content of the vegetable. So adults can drink without straining the juice too if you prefer it more healthy.
  • A pinch of cardamom could be used for a variation.
