Hot Date Almond Shake
- 3 cups milk (whole or skimmed)
- 10 Almonds
- Soft Dates
In separate bowls or cups, cover the dates and almonds with water and soak overnight. In the morning, drain the almonds and peel them by pinching them and popping the nut out of the skin (if the skins do not come off easily, try submerging the soaked almonds in very hot water before you peel them).
Bring the milk to a boil. While the milk is heating, place the peeled almonds, the soaked dates(Unseeded) and the soaking water from the dates in a blender.
When the milk froths up, add it to the blender and add hot water until the total volume is about 2½–3 cups.(Please be careful at the time of blending as milk is hot).
Blend for 2–3 minutes or until smooth and frothy. Drink warm.
You can vary the thickness of the shake by adjusting the amount of hot water you add. You can customize the quantity and density of the shake by changing the amount of dates or almonds depending on your taste.
Chilled Date Almond Shake
- 3 cups- chilled milk-(whole or skimmed)
- 10 almonds, blanched/peeled and crushed
- 10 soft dates, deseeded and chopped
- 1 large scoop vanilla ice-cream( Optional)
In a blender, add the deseeded dates, almonds and 1 cup of the chilled milk.
Blend until the dates are well combined and smooth. Add the remaining milk and vanilla ice-cream. Blend until frothy.
Taste and adjust consistency by adding milk to thin the shake or ice-cream to thicken or sweeten it.
