Dates are healthy and quite low in fat. It Is surprising to know that the average date has only 23 calories. It is high in fiber and best part is that dates are sweet in taste. Many studies shows that diets which are low in fat and high in fiber containing food reduces the risk of cancer too.
I also love the fact that dates are so sweet that you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have to add any kind of artificial sugar in it and this shake gives a fuller feeling after having it. So it is ideal to drink it in evening when you feel like binging on chips, sandwiches or pastries.
Here goes the recipe
Remove the seeds from dates and put them in the blender.Do not remove date outer skin.
Now take a blender and add milk and dates into it.One glass shake will require 4-5 dates.
Filter the mixture with the help of a sieve and serve it chilled.
1.Many people add banana also into it.But I prefer it this way because when I tried adding banana it tasted quite thick to me which I didn’t like.
2.If you find the drink too sweet or thick after making it then add little water.
3.You can 1/2 cup orange juice for that tangy taste.
4.Add a scoop of vanilla ice creame for kids.
