Dates Almond Banana shake

I know...I hav'nt blogged in  while. We just moved back to india and it has been hectic. With the packing, unpacking, two jet lagged kids, new school...phew! This has been in the draft for ages. I am late for the event I am guest hosting. I still do not have an internet connection at home. So, there is a delay in posting the round-ups. I thank each one of you who submitted the entries and kalyani for allowing me to guest host this event. Now moving on to the recipe...

This one can be made superfast and is a really tasty, yummy breakfast. As the name suggests it is a milk shake that has dates, almonds and banana. I like the shiekh shake we get in fruitshop on greamsroad. I don't know that recipe but the one I am giving now is very good.


Almonds - 10-12
Banana - 1 small, frozen.
Dates - 10 cut into small pieces
Warm water - for soaking dates and almonds
milk - 2 cups
nutmeg - 1/8th tsp (optional)

*Soak almonds in warm water and peel the skin. I usually soak them overnight.
* Cut the banana into small pieces and freeze them.
* Cut the dates into small pieces and soak them in warm water for 10 mts. This will soften them.
* Blend together forzen banana, dates, almonds and milk
* Serve with a dash of nutmeg. This is optional and you can skip it if you do not like the taste of nutmeg.
