Banana Date Shake

Dates or Date fruit , cultivated mostly in the middle eastern region is a great source of iron,vitamins and minerals. Most importantly they are very low in calorie, a fact that many of you will appreciate !!
What happens when this date fruit goes in for a date with our favorite fruit of all time, banana?? The result is very sweet,aromatic and energetic. Definitely give it at a try.

  • a cup of pitted dates/date fruit
  • one ripen banana
  • milk approx, 1 cup
  • few ice cubes (optional)
  • None
  • Put all the ingredients into a blender/mixie .
  • Add milk just enough to cover all.
  • Grind it until its smooth.
  • Pour into your cups and enjoy this healthy,juicy milkshake.
  • You can strain the milkshake if needed.(I didnt..I wanted all the richness)

Serving suggestions
  • You can add few almonds or cashews if you want.
