Banana Dates Milkshake

Whenever there are some neglected ripe bananas, I make Banana bread which is very tasty and healthy. Now I found that another quick thing to do is to make a milkshake out of them. That sounds very simple rt. Add some other fruits along with these ripe bananas and you can make very lovely milkshakes. I added some dates and found that the combo goes very well. With the sweetness of ripe bananas and dates, you may not even add honey or sugar. Its a healthy drink which you can give to kids who shows less interest to drink the plain milk, like my little one :). When my kid found that its not the usual milk for evening, he too was excited to drink the milkshake !!




What you need?

For a single serving:

1 ripe Banana
5-6 pitted Dates 
1 cup Milk
Honey to taste 

How to prepare?

Soak the dates in warm milk (about 1/4 cup) for 15-20 minutes so as to make them soft. Now add these to a blender and blend until you get a paste. Then add the chopped banana and rest of the milk. Blend again until smooth. Add honey or sugar if necessary. Serve chilled.

I am just like you Sobha..making muffins or banana bread out of bananas that nobody wants :) But then, the milkshake is also such a fantastic idea, wonder why I never thought of it :D Great way to 'drink' bananas instead of always 'eating' them :)
