Ingredients & Variations
Milk – Use whole milk for a rich and creamy milkshake. To make the shake healthier, you can definitely use low-fat or skim milk.
To make a vegan shake, use any plant-based milk like coconut mil, oat milk, soy milk, or almond milk.
Dates – Use the best quality seedless dates to make dates shake. I personally prefer using Medjool dates as they have a thin skin and softer flesh. They also have a rich caramel-like taste.
Banana – Freezing the banana makes the shake super creamy and luscious. Do not miss this step.
Honey – Adjust it as per your liking. You can replace it with maple syrup or agave nectar for a vegan version.
Vanilla Extract – It gives a lovely flavor to this shake.
You can replace vanilla extract with ground cardamom, ground cinnamon, or ground nutmeg.
You can add a scoop of vanilla ice cream or Greek yogurt to make this shake creamy and luscious.
Add a scoop of vanilla protein powder and serve this shake as a pre or post-workout snack.
To make this shake chocolaty, add 2-3 tablespoon of chocolate syrup.
