Ragi Chocolate Shake

I seriously want to clear few of my drafts since a long, finally today i got a chance to post one among those drafted posts. This ragi chocolate shake goes for an excellent and easy breezy preparation, actually i prepared this shake from one of my favourite blog to celebrate that blog's anniversary. Trust  me, none will notice the addition of ragi here as chocolate syrup and chocolate ice cream will mask completely the addition of cooked ragi porridge very well. Obviously this shake is one of the excellent and very best way to sneak as ragi porridge is the most hated whole grain porridge by the kids.I tried many versions of porridge to feed my kids especially with ragi or finger millet, everytime either they will have just two or three tablespoons or else i have to beg them to finish their bowl of porridge. But when i served this shake, my younger one just finished his whole glass within few seconds. Obviously i was shocked and surprised when i saw his glas was completely empty.

I have tried this shake many times and everytime its a big hit among kids. Needless to say this shake is our most favourite since ever i tried. I have to say a big thanks to my soul sister Priya of Cook Like Priya for sharing this beautiful shake. Since this shake is everyone's favourite at home especially among my kids, am sending this shake to this week's blogging marathon as am running Kid's delight-Colourful dishes as theme.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#49.

2tbsp Ragi flour
1tbsp Cocoa powder
2scoops Chocolate ice cream
2cups Chilled Milk
1tbsp Sugar
1tsp Vanilla extract

Whisk the 1/2 cup water with the ragi flour and cocoa powder together in a sauce pan.

Heat the saucepan on medium flame.

The mixture will start to thicken using whisk try to break it and keep stirring occasionally.

Switch off the flame, transfer to a plate and let it cool completely.

Blend now together the chilled milk, vanilla extract, sugar, icecream and the cooled ragi-chocolate mixture until well combined.

Pour in glass and enjoy.
