Dates at the Market

With Ramadhan around the corner, I thought I would share a few of my favourite and simple drink recipes

Date and Tahini Shake (serves 3-4)

  • 3 cups milk of choice 
  • 10 dates (medjool or sukary dates work best)
  • 2 tablespoons of tahini (you can substitute with almond butter)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Optional (ice)

Blend all ingredients together until smooth and serve! 

If your dates are not soft/squidgy – you can soak them in water overnight and add in to shake when ready to blend.

Peanut Butter and Banana shake (serves 3 – 4)

  • 3 ripe bananas (freeze overnight for a creamier shake)
  • 5 tablespoons of peanut butter
  • 3 cups of milk of choice (oat milk is nice in this – extra protein!)

Blend and serve with ice! 

Chocolate and Vanilla shake (serves 3 – 4)

  • 3 cups of milk
  • 2 tablespoons of cacoa powder (substitute with cocoa powder)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla powder
  • Ice

Blend and serve with dark chocolate shavings on top – and whipped cream for a more indulgent shake and enjoy!

Ideas for optional add ins to make the shakes more wholesome and nutritious: protein powder, pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, handful of oats, coconut oil, coconut water, coconut milk, maca powder, moringa powder, spinach
