Sharjah Shake or Sharjah Milkshake refers to a popular  cool beverage made with bananas and a malted (Horlicks) drink. It is very much loved in Kerala. Sharjah shake is a kind of milkshake made from small bananas (Njalipoovan variety) and Horlicks and is commonly sold in Kerala juice shops and bakeries. This one is with added chocolare syrup and ice cream and sometimes with grinded cashew nuts as toppings.

Below is a close up photo of fancy Sharja which I enjoyed very much when I was in Allepey, Kerala, India. I found it a bit different from other milkshakes I already tasted probably because the version from Kerala is made using Horlicks.
