Almond Dates Smoothie – Healthy Breakfast smoothie

  A smoothie is a blended and sometimes sweetened beverage made from fresh fruits and in some chocolate or peanut butter is added. In addition to fruit, many smoothies include crushed ice , frozen fruit , honey. They have a milkshake like consistency .They can also contain milk , yogurt or ice-cream.

  Having a smoothie during breakfast will keep you fresh throughout the day.

 This an excellent, healthy smoothie which is easy to make.
   Almond is a nutritionally dense food and is a rich source of vitamin E and also rich in dietary fiber, vitamins, and essential minerals such as magnesium, copper, manganese, calcium and potassium as well as monounsaturated fats.


     In this smoothie there is no additional sugar , sweetness from dates is enough to have a healthy and nutritious smoothie. Some kids won't eat nuts or dates directly , so if we give in this smoothie form they will have without knowing.

  I made this smoothie specially for my sister during her pregnancy. 

Almonds – 5 – 6 no’s
Milk – ½ cup
Dates  -  10 no’s
Soak the almonds in milk for 10 minutes.

If needed can add the crushed ice before serving.

Brown sugar can be added for extra sweetness.
