Traditionally thandai is prepared by soaking the nuts, dry roasting the spices and grinding them, which is time consuming. But making this instant thandai powder is real quick and is definitely better than the store bought powders which contains added colors and preservatives.

You can mix Thandai powder with chilled milk to enjoy delicious summer coolers in a minute. Thandai is specially prepared during the “Holi Season”, So why not make it now?

Thandai have fewer calories than regular milkshakes, it’s also a healthier option to alcohol. It helps cool the body and improves gut health. Since all the ingredients used are natural and healthy, you can devour them guilt-free and of course the kids will love them too !!

Storage: Store the thandai powder in an airtight container that is free of moisture. It can be stored in fridge for up to a month.

Pro tip: Grind the mixture as finely as possible, but not for very long since the nuts can release oil and make the powder sticky. Pulse it not more than 10 sec at a time. If you have any doubts ,do ask me in the comments section below or connect me over Instagram at Bakewithbittybakes.
