Apple Dates Milkshake

apple date milkshake
My morning is noon for rest of the world. It’s better to have lunch than breakfast at that time. Yet, every single day, my father prepares breakfast for me. I think that’s what you call as optimistic attitude…

Anyway, I have told him not to make anything for me in the mornings. If I am too hungry, I make a quick milkshake for myself. And this particular milkshake has a speciality – its been in my bookmark list for a really long time.

Unfortunately, I was a bit let down by the taste of this milkshake, but I told myself it’s healthy and that’s more important. So in case you are ready to brave a healthy milkshake, go ahead and make these. Add a scoop of ice cream or a bar of chocolate while blending to make it much more tasty and totally sinful!

    Your father is so sweet Rajani:).
    And I assumed to title to be Banana dates and then read your comment on the taste.Went back up to check! I agree chocolate adds a better flavor to the shake….

  13. That is so nice of your father. My daughter will not eat apple but will surely drink this shake

  14. I go with banana – MTR badam mix and dates usually. That really tastes good and was guessing it would be the same with apples as well. Am surprised with your input.
