Peach Falooda (Faluda) - An Indian 'Bubble Tea'

Indian falooda is a little known drink here in the US. It's a cross between a drink and a dessert. A milkshake of sorts. Traditionally, it's made with milk, some sugar, rose syrup, vermicelli noodles, basil seeds, a pinch of cardamon, a couple scoops of vanilla ice cream and chopped nuts as a garnish. If you are relatively new here to Food Wanderings, I try to avoid tree nuts due to allergies. Here I gave it my own seasonal twist?
