Mocha Date Shake

Mocha Date Shake

Straight from Heaven!

Shakes and drinks are an inevitable part of our Ramadan. It adds up to our festivity and preparations of Iftar time. Date being a mandatory portion of Ramadan diet, has to be on my prior list to create extravagant recipe to cheer empty stomachs after long hours of fasting with a warm welcoming dose. This shake is undoubtedly a gala treat ! and you will  get indulged in it.

Here are the short list you will need:

-Dates 1/2 cup seeded

-Milk 1/2 cup

-Cream 1/4 cup

-Sugar/Brown sugar 2 tbsp

-Crushed ice

-Instant coffee 1 tsp


Just blend everything together except crushed ice.  Pour in glasses with ice on top as you like!

Enjoy every sip of  it.

Health benefit:

Dates are said to be a part of healthy diet. They consist of sugar, fats, proteins as well as many essential vitamins. If the dates are consumed with the paste of cucumber, one can easily come out from the problem of over-slimming. One kilogram of dates contains almost 3,000 calories. These calories alone are sufficient to meet the daily requirements of a human body.
