Today’s recipe is ‘Healthy Date Milk’. As the recipe name suggests it is a very healthy milk recipe. During winters when anyone is suffering from cold and cough, this milk recipe is a perfect home remedy. Dates are very healthy fruit but at the same very sweet, so diabetic person please avoid having it. It is a warm drink and perfect for winter season. One can have it as a breakfast recipe.
Date milk recipe requires – Milk, dates and cardamom powder. It is a three ingredients recipe. If you want you can also add cinnamon powder and black cardamom powder. The variety of date which I used in this recipe was a premium quality one, which was very soft and medium sweet in taste. The number of dates required for this recipe will depend upon the size and sweetness of dates. If your dates are very dry and hard ones, please soak dates in half cup milk for 30 mins in advance.
