Dates and Honey Milk Shake

I am happy to post my 200th post from Saudi. So I want to share this wonderful Milk shake with all my friends.
                        Saudi Arabia is a home land of palm trees and dates. Here we can see fresh ripe dates. When I went for shopping this week. I saw ripe dates in the market and I used to love it as such. I bought one full box of it and I planned to make a Milk shake.  Many of them love dates shake. Many times I used to think of preparing some thing new than our usual shakes like mango, sapota  and even papaya.  Then I tried this and it turned out yummy. I felt really happy when I had it.
                         Dates itself is sweeter than sugar. So I avoided sugar, and added honey instead. By adding ice cream I make the shake a little creamier and tastier. My daughter enjoyed dates shake, she was the person who asked me to keep the dates in the side of the glass while I was taking a pic.
                         I used low fat milk for me, and prepared it with out ice cream. Cos weight conscious . So if you are weight conscious substitute all the ingredients which is having  low fat .Lovely dates and its rich taste.Try it out  u will really enjoy.

Dates – 10 or 12 no (depends on the sweetness)
Almond – 7no
Full Fat fresh Milk – 1 ½ cup ( boiled and chilled)
Honey – 3tsp
Sugar – Add if needed.(optional)
Vanilla Icecream – 1½ Scoop
Remove the seeds from the dates and  chop it finely. Take a blender add the dates, almonds blend it in high speed, u will get little coarse powder of it and add ½ cup of milk,Make a smooth paste. Then add the ice cream and rest of the milk with honey.  
If u need more sweetness add sugar according to taste. Here the dates itself is sweet and we r adding honey for more taste. Blend it in pulse mode.  Serve chilled . As we r adding vanilla ice cream it will be more tastier and the kids will love it.
I am Sending this recipe to the event  Fun in Sun by Radhika of tickling Palate
