Iced Strawberry Sahlab
Today’s temperature was so hot, I just felt the need of making a nice cold drink. A little bored by smoothies so I figured why not make iced sahlab and Inspired by Clumbsy Cookie, then came the idea of flavoring it extra, with strawberries. The result was awesome, fresh flowery cold summer drink.
- 1 1/2 tablespoons Sahlab powder or 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 4 cups milk
- 3 tablespoons sugar,
- 1 cup almond powder
- 2 teaspoons orange-blossom water
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped pistachios
- 200gr Strawberies
- Ground cinnamon
- Ice cubes
Mix the Sahlab powder or cornstarch with a few tablespoons of milk. Bring the remaining milk to a boil. Pour in the starch mixture, stir, so that lumps do not form. Cook over very low heat, stirring continuously, until the milk thickens . Then stir in the sugar, almond powder and orange blossom water. Let it cool.
In a blender mix strawberries, ice cubes and cooled sahlab.
Serve with the chopped pistachios and cinnamon as garnish.
