This is a super easy and quick to make milk shake that is made with fresh fruits and a healthy dose of milk. This recipe does not have ice cream in it, but you can add if you want to. Also, you can add any other citrus fruits if you want to this shake depending on their availability.

This shake is tangy and sweet and a fresh touch of mint on top gives it a very perfect blend of refreshing taste. You can have it for breakfast or whenever you feel like having something that does not add many calories.
