I quite like milkshakes because they are an easy way to have fruits and get your five a day portions. However, some people may be wary of taking milk due to varied reasons like calories, fat, lactose intolerance etc. Although I am not too worried about these at the minute, my interest was in increasing the fibre content in my diet. For that reason and also in the interest of folks who are looking for milk substitutes, I chose oats milk for this recipe. Oat milk is naturally cholesterol free and lactose free and has cancer preventing phytochemicals too. I went for the store bought oat milk although it is not difficult to make it at home. This milkshake is rich in antioxidants, fibre and many other trace nutrients essential to keep the immune system functioning well. I added very little sugar and stuck to unrefined brown sugar. The flaked almonds are optional as some people may not like the little bites and nutty flavour from them in a milkshake.
3 glasses oats milk
2 tablespoon flaked almonds
5-6 strawberries (I used frozen)
3 apples, cut with skin
2 teaspoon brown sugar or any other sweetner of choice
Combine part of the milk, all apples and strawberry together and blend. Add sugar, almonds and more milk and blend further
