Almond & date shake

Temperature is rising beyond comfortable level and the humidity can be oppressive,making it feel hotter than it actually is.If one does not take proper precautions during these sweltering condition the result could be serious even deadly.So check your water intake and try to cut down oily and spicy food.
    Today i went out to drop kids to their summer camp and on the me and my hubby went to market to do our weekly shopping for vegetable and fruits and by the time we reached home it was almost 12 o'clock and the heat was unbearable.Then i thought of making this almond and date drink which i soaked for my dessert.It was so yum and really very cooling,i never tried this combo before.To make it more interesting i have just added some banana which was lying in fridge...Here is the recipe for that  healthy milk shake to beat the heat.

  1. Dates-10
  2. Almonds-10
  3. Banana-1 big
  4. Honey-1tbsp
  5. Cardamom powder-1/4tsp
  6. Milk (chilled)-3cups
  7. Ice cubes-10
  • Soak almond and dates in warm milk for 30 mins.
  • Now blend both together to fine paste then add all the other ingredients and blend nicely to get that foamy shake.
  • Garnish with few crushed almonds and dates.
