Gulkand & Foxtail Millet Breakfast Shake

I know this recipe name will definitely pull out your curiousness, i got a packet of rose preserve aka gulkand from India and i wanted to make dishes out of it since a long. But dunno why my lil brain didnt worked out wonder to bring out a beautiful recipe. When i asked my friends through FB to share some interesting recipes or tips to use gulkand, i was submerged by their beautiful replies.Obviously i was bit confident to use gulkand in shake as most of my friends suggested shake with gulkand.Since i had some cooked foxtail millet i just added them in this shake. This shake with cooked foxtail millet turned out extremely delicious,filling, satisfying and absolutely healthy with a wonderful rose flavour. Definitely a healthy shake to kick start your day.Sending this smoothie to my own event Healthy Diet-Filling Smoothies & Shakes by Veena.


2tbsp Cooked foxtail millet
2cups Chilled milk
1tbsp Gulkand (rose preserve)
Sugar or honey (as per need)
Rose syrup (few drops)

Blend together the gulkand,foxtail millet,sugar, rose syrup and milk together as smooth paste,if you want your shake bit thin add more milk.

I prepared mine bit thick as i had it for my breakfast.

Serve immediately.
