Chikoo Watermelon Juice


                Chikoo/Sapota, Custard apple n Guava( seedless)  are the three fruits which i love more n had more n more number of times in my life :) but these three are the fruits which i didn't had or had once or twice for the past 4.5 years :( Chikoo/ Sapota are not available here,in NJ i am able to get very rarely that too those fruits wont taste sweet n good as much like what we get in India.Though those chikoos are not good in quality i use to buy them due to my strong love on it..there are some sweet memories related with this chikoo fruit :p As the chikoos available here are not much tastier,so i use to make them juice n milk shakes.I love chikoo chocolate milk shake..Mmmm....
                  This time i brought some frozen chikoos and i would like to make juices n milkshakes.For a change this time tried chikoo n watermelon combo....was so delicious n refreshing drink ..The watermelons which we bough this time was so sweet n juicy and when combined with frozen chikoos in juice form turned out as a heavenly drink to me....Here u go..

Ingredients
  1. Chikoo   2 no.s
  2. Water melon    1 cup(cut in to chunks)
  3. Honey    1 tsp or to taste                                                             
  4. Cold milk    1 and 1/4 cup ( i used low fat milk)
  5. ice cubes   as needed
Method
  • In a blender , add peeled n cut pieces  of  chikoos(without seeds) and watermelon chunks n honey.
  • Blend well to a smooth juice n add milk run again for few seconds.
  • the pour the juice to the serving glass ,add some ice cubes n enjoy....
Notes:
Instead of honey sugar can also be used.
If interested add some cardamom powder to the  juice.
Can also try with a scoop of  vanilla ice cream to a rich chikoo watermelon milk shake..
