A study was undertaken to assess the quality characteristics and suitability of milk of Hariana (H), Cross breed (CB) and Sahiwal (S) cows for development of milk smoothies. The 125 g milk of each breed, 75 g of banana, three variants of sugar and 0.1 percent sodium alginate were used in formulation. Prepared smoothies were analyzed for different phyico-chemical and sensory characteristics. In general, non-significant (P<0.05) differences were observed in physico-chemical characteristics among different smoothies. But mean values of water, protein and solid-not-fat showed significantly (P<0.05) different values. Water was significantly (P<0.05) lower while solid-not-fat was significantly (P<0.05) higher in Cross breed milk smoothies as compared to the smoothies of other breeds of cows. The sensory profile of all the smoothies were no significant (P>0.05) differences with each other. Finally Sahiwal milk smoothies were selected based on higher scores of sweetness, acidity, consistency and overall acceptability scores than others.
