Summer Drink - Roohafza

My husband got Roohafza for the first time. So I wanted to try it out how it tastes. I always had a wrong impression on it, as it smelled a little of rose water. But after I try it I can say confidently that, people who like the falooda sev drink/icecream will like this too.

Just add Rooh-afza with cold water ice cubes. If you want, you can top it up some whipped cream.

The following picture is when I added Rooh-afza with a little cold milk, water, ice cubes. Mix them up and added a little fat free whipped cream on top.

The label on it says it can be used as topping on an ice-cream, too so try it out.

I tried this recipe from plantainleaf. Here is the link of the recipe.

It came out really good. Planning to make it one more time.
Here is the picture of what it looks like when I tried it for the first time:

Blueberry Juice/Milk shake

I hate eating fruits. But if they are turned into something tasty then I can have it. Since fruits are very healthy, I generally make something out of fruits to add it into my diet for health reasons. My husband got this big box of blueberries this time. Personally I dont want to eat them. He asked me to make milk shake or juice out of it so that we all can have it and finish it faster without getting them wasted. Here is how I made it :

Wash and take blue berries in a blender.

Add sufficiant milk to it and blend it.

I then filtered it to get the total juice out of it.

Add honey according to your taste. and your juice is ready to serve or drink.
