My cousin and I had some dates sitting in our fridge staring at us in the face. We decided to experiment with this healthy fruit hawked by the Abokis who peddle their wares in wheelbarrows. Dates are a good source of vitamins, aside from the fact that this fruit tastes like honeyed candy. So we eventually came up with this mixture that tasted heavenly.
Here’s the recipe:
1.5 glass of milk
Wash the dates and remove the seeds.
Blend it with a 5-6 table spoon of milk. (Use the milk as water while blending)
Blend for a few minutes.
Add the rest of the milk, ice cubes and blend well for 4-5 minutes
Then pour into a glass
If you live in Nigeria and do not have electricity, pray for PHCN to bring the light, as its best served cold. Note: you can try adding any other fruit to the mix, for example bananas.
