Dates Banana Almond Milk Shake

Resolutions !! I absolutely love resolutions!! Making them and then breaking them as well !!  Whats the maximum time that you have adhered to resolutions? Me, around 1 month... Thats all.. Then forgotten until next year.. Well, I made such a resolution around 2 weeks back that I will try to post every day for a month continuously excluding the week ends!! But I ended up breaking the resolution in just a week!! Reasons are many... Main issue was the health problems that I have been encountering quite frequently for a while and the second issue was purely lack of time.. Hopefully very soon I will able to adhere to posting daily.. But right now all I can manage is probably 2 posts a week... 
Today I am posting the recipe of Dates Banana Almond Milk Shake. Do you know that consuming one date a day is necessary in a balanced and healthy diet... I didnt like dates much in my childhood. But recently I brought a packet of medjool dates and loved them. Aboslutely sweet and very plump.. Loved them so much that I made sweet chutney for the Chaats with them (Recipe coming soon). It came out so well that I started thinking about how else I can use them other than having them as snacks. Then I found that we can make milkshakes with dates. Decided to try it out and have as my break fast smoothie today. It was so filling and yum!! Here goes the recipe...

  • You can use normal milk also for making the shake.
  • I used Medjool dates which were very sweet and didnt feel the need to add any sweetners. but you can add honey or sugar as per your taste.
