To cool down the heat of summer, replace ice creams with following recipes:a)

Fruit popsicles: Get some nice moulds, pour the fresh fruit juice (prefer some coloured once like the mango, pomegranate) add some fruit chunks of your choice to it. Let the mould be in the refrigerator till the ice sets. b)

Fresh fruit yogurt: Try on some fresh fruit yogurt. Add your little one's choice fruit pulp to the curd and mix well. Set it in the refrigerator to make flavoured yogurt. c)

Fruit yogurt biscuits’: Twist can be given by placing the set yogurt in between two cookies. d)

Fresh fruit smoothies: Crush your loved fruits and mix them with fresh curd, cream, and honey to make a yummy filling smoothie. Smoothies are calorie dense, but at the same size are small portions which kids can relish.

Making the Ragi malt:

  • Soak Ragi overnight.
  • Next morning, drain the water and tie it in a muslin cloth for germination.
  • Once the sprouts are out, dry the Ragi in the shaded area.
  • Grind the dry sprouted Ragi in a mixer and sieve it well.
  • Store in airtight container.

For sweet variations:

  • Dry roast almonds and pistachios (all nuts of your choice) till they warm up.
  • Grind the roasted nuts with cardamom and nutmeg in the grinder to make a fine powder.
  • Mix this powder with the Ragi malt and add hot or cold milk of your choice.
  • Relish the healthy and sweet drink.

For Salty variations:

  • Mix the malt with buttermilk.
  • Add chopped coriander and 1 or 2 thin ginger slices.
  • Add salt as per the taste.
