Party Ideas: Yummy Milkshake Recipes

Planning a menu for a kid’s gathering is a mind-boggling task. While the food items are somehow easier to think of and finalise, what gets most of us is what drink to serve the kids.

 

I know the most common and easiest drink served at kids parties is the “fresh n juicy” mango drink but let’s admit it is as unhealthy and inappropriate as any soda-based or tetra pak drink.

 

For a few parties I too served it to my son’s friends with guilt of course. That changed one day when I had a ‘Eureka’ moment of whipping up yummy shakes. Tried, tested and loved by my toddler and his friends too!

Sharing below some recipe ideas of shakes you must try for your child’s next birthday party.
