Milkshakes made from dates (called khajoor in India) are sweet, nutritious and satisfying. Depending on your preferences, you can choose to add other ingredients like bananas, nuts, dried fruits, saffron, cardamom and sugar.
For my date milkshakes, I like to add a variety of nuts as well as saffron. I do not add sugar of any kind; I find the dates to be plenty sweet on their own.
