Badam or Almonds is one of the nutritious nuts, especially for kids. And if your kid hates milk, this is the best way to make him or her drink the milk. Who doesn’t love almonds and kids will finish it without you yelling at them. Personal experience.
This doodh(Milk) gets nice thick texture because of the almond paste and Kesar(Saffron) gives this shake a nice refreshing aroma and I bet you won’t stop after one glass of it.
