SARBAT (APPLE MILKSHAKE)

 

A rich, cool drink made from milk and fruit or nut milk, sarbat is an ideal “pick-me-up” for serving in the late afternoon on hot days when dinner will be late and something is needed to sustain guests through the early evening.

 

2 dessert apples such as Cox’s Orange Pippin or Russet, peeled, cored and chopped

450 ml / pt cold milk

2 tbsp caster sugar

about 1 tsp rose water or orange-flower water

shaved ice, to serve, if liked

 

Put the apples, milk and sugar into a blender and mix until smooth. Add rose water or orange-flower water to taste. Serve over shavd ice, if liked, in chilled glasses.
