Chikoo Nutella Milkshake (Sapota / Sapodilla Nutella Milkshake)

Chikoo also known as Sapota or Sapodilla, is a very common brown colored sweet fruit found in India, Asia, Mexico etc. It is a tropical fruit with black seeds in the center.
I am and have always been a chikoo lover. But sadly my kid hates them. Being born and brought up in US until now, today was the first time she saw chikoo. Her first reaction began with, 'Mama, why are you giving me a potato to eat'. When I peeled and began to cut one, she screamed at the sight of it's black seeds (like most of the girls do at the sight of a cockroach). Yep, you guessed it, that's what she thought and said, 'Mama, there's a cockroach inside this fruit'. That gave us a reason to have a good laugh and then hubby had to take her out of the kitchen, so that I could blend these yummy chikoos in her milkshake. I added nutella to this shake to make it look like a chocolate milk and to enhance the flavor of the shake. The flavor combination of chikoos and nutella was simply divine and fulfilling. And just one more way to use that leftover nutella in your refrigerator.

  18. When I was a young boy,we had two sapota trees in our garden and it was my assigned duty to climb the trees and pluck all the fruits.They would be hard and raw but would get ripe ina couple of days.Such sweetness I dare say no other fruit had.The surfeit of it made me lose my fancy for the fruit as I grew up.But with sapotas hard to come by these days I relish it in any form.You get chikoo alva in Ahmedabad.Have you tried it? The glass of milk shake is tempting
