We are surviving in Delhi summer holding the tall glasses of smoothies, lemonades, and milkshakes. Because it is dry and scorching hot throughout the day. In midst of such high heat, a towering glassful of drinks such as Date and Coffee Milkshake help us keep calm and get going. It has become one of our favorite breakfast drinks for two reasons – it is all naturally sweetened with date and it has coffee.
This date and coffee milkshake is one of the delicious ways to have coffee during the summer season. I love milkshakes that taste like cold coffee. And the cold coffee that is actually a milkshake. So cool isn’t it? Perfect for giving you a boost to make the most of a gloriously warm and sunny day ahead.
Date and Coffee Milkshake is so great in the morning as a way to have morning coffee and milkshake all in one delicious drink. Or perfect for a healthy evening snack. It’s delicious, sweet, healthy, refreshing, an energy-booster and happens to be naturally gluten-free. What do you think you would give it a try? And one more reason for you to try this recipe – it takes less than 20 minutes to make this milkshake. Also, it requires only 5 ingredients to make date and coffee milkshake. Yes, you read it right, only 5-ingredients. So it is an under 20 minutes breakfast with less than 5 ingredients in the recipe list.
To soften the dates so that they blend well into the milkshake – soak them overnight in the milk. Roughly chop the dates, soak them in milk and keep in the fridge. This way you get a super creamy, frothy and tasty smoothie. And it even takes lesser time to blend. Technically, that is the only preparation step that needs to be done to make this date milkshake. It’s super simple, super delicious, and overflowing with feel-good ingredients to get your day off to a good start.
