Sharjah shake is nothing but banana milkshake which is commonly found in Kerala juice shops and bakeries. I came to know about this drink from my neighbour. She makes this very often for her sons during summer. She suggested me to try once. As I had some ripe banana lying in the pantry I tried this milk shake ..We loved it. It tasted slightly different from the usual banana milkshake. Not only the taste, but also the color. Addition of boost and Chikki/Cashew/Badam makes the difference here. One more important thing in this recipe is, it uses frozen milk cubes. It can be made in a jiffy and adding ice cream is optional. It comes out thick without adding ice cream. It is a refreshing and a filling drink too.. Adjust the amount of sugar based on ur liking. .Do try this Kerala Sharjah shake, you’ll fall in love with it !
