Choco Chikku is one famous fresh juice that I often have in my office. They serve it in a beer mug-like glass and having one just fills your tummy and chases away your hunger. I usually opt for this milkshake with a boiled egg sandwich to complete my lunch whenever I miss taking home-made lunch. A simple but complete lunch.
Again its chikku season here and all the sapodillas of this season taste sweet, honey-like and heavenly. I got a whole 1 kg of chikku when I went grocery shopping this time... All the fruits started ripening on the same day and I thought of replicating my favorite office drink.I divided the juice into 2 batches and to one part added some chocolate flavored Whey powder which was served as Mr.A's after-exercise health drink.
Chikku / Sapotta / Sapodilla - 4
Hershey's Chocolate Syrup - 2 tbsp
Milk - 1 cup
Water - 1 cup
Sugar - 2 tbsp
Chocolate wafer sticks - 2
Chocolate Whey Powder - 2 heaped tbsp
Chocolate ice cream - 1 scoop (optional)
Peel the skin of the chikku and de-seed the fruits. Cut into pieces.
Blend together the chikku pieces, choco syrup, coffee powder, milk, water and sugar till combined well.
Garnish with extra chocolate sauce and wafer sticks. Scoop on top a dollop of ice-cream and serve. I skipped the ice-cream :(
Chikku Health Drink
Mix the whey powder with the milkshake and serve as an after-exercise drink.
Note:Adjust the sugar as per the fruit's taste. The ones that I used were so sweet and so 2 tbsp of sugar was sufficient for me.
