Red Velvet Milkshake, Pistachio Milkshake and Blueberry Milkshake

Ramadan Mubarak to all the people of Maldives and all the Muslims around the globe. I wanted my first recipes for this Ramadan to be three delicious milkshakes. Milkshakes being such a popular drink, it’s hardly surprising that so many different flavors have sprung up over the years, so I came up with a red velvet milkshake, Pistachio milkshake and blueberry milkshake, my tasting judge was my daughter. She works as a cabin attendant at Fly Mega so she travels lot and has tasted many kinds of milk shakes. She loved all the milk shakes but her and mine favorite was Red Velvet Milk Shake. Nothing can beat Red Velvet right ……. Either it’s cake or a drink.
