DATE "MILKSHAKE"

Another recipe from Shankari, this is the Date Milkshake that I said I was going to start drinking in the mornings for a healthy breakfast. It's easy :
11/2C milk (I used soy milk)
6 pitted dates
5 raw almonds
a little less than 1/8 tsp cardamom
In a blender blend all together until creamy and enjoy.
A tip from Shankari, blend the dates, almonds and the cardamom in a larger batch, this can either be refridgerated for quite a while of frozen. Just add the milk and blend.
This recipe serves 2.
I did the breakdown for this drink because I wanted to see the calorie content. This is for the whole recipe. So it turns out to be a healthy drink.

I went and bought some dates last night to make some more shake. I am thrilled when my students like my recipe.

And your curry leaf plant has grown bigger than ours
