Sharjah shake/Banana milk shake

It is one of the popular milk shakes of Kerala. During my college days, me along with my friends used to drink this shake often and i still remember those wonderful moments when we shared one sharjah shake among many friends. I have a lot of sweet memories associated with Sharjah shake and our St Josephs women's college!

Sharjah shake/Banana milk shake

If you are staying in Kerala, use Milma packet milk and njaali poovan banana for preparing this shake. I have tried making this shake using poovan,.njaali poovan and robusta banana and I personally feel that the drink tastes the best when prepared using njali poovan/poovan banana.
