Power- Packed Special Banana & Peanut Drink Recipe :-

I am sharing a very quick yet yummy weight gaining breakfast drink today. You can have it to compensate or accompany with a snack too. It is so filling, nutritious and delicious recipe as well! But before I share the secrets, make sure you 'subscribe to my blog' by clicking on the link near to this post. This way  you don't miss any of my future posts :) Now let us begin with the recipe.


Poha/Aval/Flattened(Beaten)Rice - 1/4 cup (270 calories in 1 cup)
Small banana - 2 no.s (or use 1 large banana)
Peanuts - 1/4 cup ( beat it to pieces and leave the skin behind)
Sugar- as needed
Horlicks/ Boost- 2 tbsp
Freezed milk- around 1 1/2 cups
(I suggest you to use the frozen milk- itself for its icecream kind of texture)

N.B:- For freezing milk, just leave the milk packet as it is in the freezer for about 6-8 hours. Once it is completely freezed, use a meat tendiser or even your rolling pin to mash it up and you are ready to go! ✌

1) Dry roast the Poha/aval/beaten rice over a low flame stirring continuously. When you take a piece of aval between your fingers, you should be able to break it with sound. That's when you know it's ready. You can store the poha this way in an airtight container so the next time you make this recipe, there is no cooking involved!

2) Take a blender and add the (beaten up) frozen milk, bananas, Horlicks and sugar into it. Blend it to a smooth paste.

Tip: Try not to substitute frozen milk with cold milk because the texture and the taste kind of seems to be different for me. When you are adding frozen milk, it is almost like eating an icecream or a dessert!

3) Take a serving glass and add some of the roasted Poha and crushed peanuts into it (you can also add tuti fruti, cherries, chopped nuts as well). Now, add the banana shake to it. Top it up with the rest of the poha and peanuts. Serve chilled. If you prefer, you can also top it with icecream or any of your favorite flavoured syrups.

This is a typical Malabar (a region in Kerala, India) recipe and I find it quite appealing for all of us who are into a weight gain track.

You can imagine how power packed the drink is! Do try to add a serving into your daily diet. You can even blend peanuts! Go nuts :-P

Indian Breakfast Menu Ideas for Weight Gain Diet

When I decided to go for a weight gain plan, I checked out the Indian diet plans as well. But there wasn’t a comprehensive ‘Indian’ diet. So I thought I would prepare one for myself. I drafted this one after going into the details of calories and other nutritional facts. This can act as a guideline for the weight gainers to decide their diet. So these are the seven days breakfast ideas.


Chickpea Salad for Weight Gainers

Chickpeas are very rich in calories. It is said that 100 grams of chickpeas contain approximately 364 calories. This is our special recipe which we prepare during Ramadan Days. It tastes yummy and it is very easy to prepare once you have the cooked chickpeas. You can also use the canned chickpeas which we usually use for preparing hummus. I am planning to have it every other day.
