Banana Dates Milkshake


Do you like bananas? I know most of you would answer in yes! My family is a banana loving family too. H, Mil , Fil all have minimum two bananas everyday. But I and my elder daughter just detest this fruit. We would prefer to stay hungry but not have this even if this were one of the last options. Somehow I developed a kind of aversion to bananas from my childhood and my elder one has followed my footsteps.

Even though I do not eat them, I want my daughter to have them and this milkshake is a great way to sneak in the bananas. She never realized that the milkshake had bananas until I told her. She was Ok with it and said she can have the fruits if disguised this way :) A perfect way to feed your children something healthy.


Makes about 3 cups
What you’ll need
  1. Banana – 2 ripe, big
  2. Deseeded Dates – 10 to 12
  3. Almonds - 4 to 5
  4. Chilled Milk – 2 Cups
  5. Honey – 1 or 2 tsp (optional)

Method
  1. Slice the bananas and freeze them for a couple of hours.
  2. Soak the dates and almonds in some warm water till they are soft.
  3. To make the milkshake, add the frozen the banana slices, soaked dates to the blender and blend till they become a smooth paste.
  4. Add the milk and blend again.
  5. Add honey if required.
  6. Delicious Banana Dates Milkshake is ready to be served. Serve chilled.

Kaveri,

I stumbled upon your blog when I was looking for the recipe for pitla. And I have been sitting here and reading (with my mouth watering) all the recipes. My husband (a madras guy with tanjavur blood) and son are going to be treated to all the dishes I grew up eating. Only after eating kerala iyer chaapadu can one understand what is missing in life :) But this chakai varatti was the ultimate....makes me want it. Hopefully I will be able to get some in a month when I visit India. Keep up the great work and keep adding recipes for us to enjoy
