Pineapple Milk Shake

Looking for quick, delicious and filling milk shake. Try this one out.  Pineapples are rich in Vitamin C & A and a very good source of dietary fiber. Raw milk is a good source of Calcium and protein. Just put them in a good quality blender, blend and drink. Do not filter and discard the fiber. Fiber in these fruits are very important to the body and these fibers make you feel full for a longer time. You can also add chia gel to these milk shakes to fortify them with Omega 3 and 6 and also to give you sense of fullness. (Soak 1 Tbsp of Chia seed 3 Tbsp of Water and let this sit for few minutes). Now add this gel to the milkshake and enjoy.

Pineapple is a high GI fruit, so avoid this milk shake if you are diabetic.

Preparation Time - 10 Minutes

Cooking Time - Nil

Serves - 2


Pineapple pieces - 1 Cup

Milk - 1 1/2 Cups (Chilled)

Ice - few pieces optional

Cinnamon - 1/2 Tsp or Vanilla extract (optional)

Xylitol - 2 Tsp to taste (optional and depending on the sweetness of the pineapple)


1) Place the pineapple pieces, milk, xylitol(if using) and cinnamon powder in a blender and

blend till smooth. ( I used vita mix, so it was perfect milk shake with no necessity to filter and discard    the fiber).

2) Add few pieces of ice and serve immediately.
