Ingredients description

  1. Strawberry – Strawberry is the star ingredient of this milkshake recipe so choose it wisely. If using fresh strawberries, choose perfectly ripen deep red strawberries, perfect for making any strawberry drink. Even for making this drink, you can use frozen strawberries too.
