Paan Shots

I wanted to present my favorite paan as a dessert drink. I made a fresh batch of rose petal jam and made a smoothie with chopped betel leaves, almond milk and cardamom powder. You can also use vanilla ice cream instead of almond milk. Serve it cold on a shot glass. This is a vegan dessert as I have made it with almond milk. If you use a store bought rose petal jam, then this is a no-cook, no-fire recipe. Your kids can help you make it.

Servings 10 Shots Glass


  • 1-2 betel leaf, roughly torn or chopped
  • 3-5 tbsp gulkhand jam (homemade or store bought) – use as per your liking
  • 500 ml Almond milk
  • 10-12 soaked almond, ground to a paste
  • 1 tsp cardamom powder (add more if you like its flavor)


  • In a small grinder, preferably a smoothie blender, add betel leaves, rose petal jam, 1/2 cup almond milk & cardamom powder. Blend it well to form a smooth paste. Don’t add all the milk as it will not grind well.
  • Add more almond milk to dilute the paste. Mix the almond paste well to combine.
  • Transfer to a clean bowl. Strain it and store it in fridge.
  • Once you are ready to serve, mix well as they will settle down at the bottom. Pour in shot glass and serve cold.
