5 ingredient milkshake recipe
Here are the ingredients you nedd for making this easy peasy date milkshake:
Dates: Use sweet, super soft dates such as Medjool, Deglet Noor, or any other similar variety. Get rid of the seeds inside the dates or use pitted ones.
Banana: A ripe, sweet banana is perfect for this milkshake recipe.
Milk: I have used low-fat milk for making the milkshake. For a vegan milkshake, you can use almond/soy/cashew milk.
Figs: The dried figs give a good taste and add nutrition to the milkshake. Feel free to add almonds, walnuts, pecan nuts, or any other dry fruits and berries.
Cinnamon Powder: It gives an earthy, warm, ad slightly spicy taste to the date milkshake. You can substitute it with cardamom powder, pumpkin spice powder, or instant coffee powder.

My Tried & True Tips
Before using dates for making milkshake or bread, they require soaking time to soften. I prefer soaking them in milk overnight and keep in the fridge. Use the soaked dates along with milk for making a super creamy and smooth milkshake.
Make sure to use sweet-tasting and ripe banana for making the milkshake. If you have a frozen banana sitting in the refrigerator then nothing like it.
I prefer using chilled milk for making the date milkshake. It makes it more creamy.
Banana and cinnamon are a match made in heaven. Also, the taste of cinnamon helps to balance the sweetness of dates and banana.
