Dry fruit Milkshake


While someone asks me had coffee?? I always reply evenings I don’t drink coffee or tea except for holidays or weekends and that is because sometimes I have a small nap in the afternoons ;) . Yes you hear me right no coffee or tea in the evenings, I don’t know the reason but I woukd prefer a fresh juice or a milkshake or plain milk instead or sometimes nothing. I make sure kids get their required nutrients and blend something yummy yet healthy. This milkshake is full of nutrients so do try and enjoy!

Serves -2
Ingredients:

Chilled Milk: 1.5 to 2 cups
Pitted Dates: 8-10
Dried Figs : 4 (soaked in hot water atleast for half an hour so that it gets easy to blend)
Almonds: 20
Cashew Nuts: 20

Method:

1. Chop the dates and soaked figs into small pieces and set aside.

2. Grind the cashews and almonds to a powder to this add the chopped dates and figs little milk and grind until smooth paste.

3. Then add the chilled milk and blend it again for a few seconds. Add more milk if you want thinner consistency.

4. Pour the milkshake into a glass and serve immediately. 



Note:
I have soaked the figs to make it easy to puree but if you don’t have time then you can use them just like that and make sure you chop really small pieces to make the blending easy.
Happy Cooking,
