A Date to remember - Dates Milkshake

This is one drink which I am having for breakfast every other day. i saw the recipe in Mahimaa's blog and got hooked to its taste the moment I tried it. It tastes heavenly and you ought to try it. It is healthy and nutritious combining the goodness of almonds and dates. Banana gives a rich consistency to the drink. Just blend a glass for yourself and enjoy!

Ingredients (Makes 2 tall glasses)

Dates - 5 pits removed

Almonds - 10

Banana - 1

Cold Milk - 2 cups

Cardamom powder - 1 pinch (optional)

Directions

Soak the almonds overnight. In the morning peel the almonds. You can use the almonds with the skin too. Slice the banana. Blend together the dates, almonds, cardamom powder, banana, cold milk until a smooth consistency. If you find it to be too thick, add a little water.

Serve chilled.
