Dates and Oats Smoothie 


Ramadan is almost here! And this is one of my favorite drinks to have at the time of iftar. This one drink is enough to quench your thirst and fill your tummies. Also perfectly refreshing during summer. 😍👌
This milkshake is super nutritious. And you instantly feel that zing in your energy levels. Feel free to use Almond milk if you are lactose intolerant. Dates are rich in anti oxidants too.
Try this drink for iftar and you can thank me later. 😉😁❤️



This can make a perfect breakfast or food for anytime of the day. I guarantee you that you will instantly feel so good when you drink this. It's more like food for the body. Just 3 ingredients and voila you have the most simple, delicious and healthy smoothie ever!

The story behind this smoothie is that I always love to try new drinks for Ramadan. Well, we all face that time during Ramadan when you don't have the energy or time to shop and you need to fill your tummies with whatever is at home. So I thought of dates as dates are in abundance in the time of Ramadan at every home and also oats are really nutritious. So I was thinking of preparing a smoothie that wouldn't be headche, like finding many ingredients.. This smoothie is one that can be definetly tried by everyone at home.. Since these are basic ingredients..
I love dates.. Having at least 2 of them in a day makes a whole lot of difference.. Especially its high in Iron. Also there no requirement for artificial sweetener but if you really think it's not sweet enough feel free to add in some honey or extra dates. 


When I first made this here, everyone did not like the taste at the first sip. But as you drink it, you taste the flavors more and makes you feel good. The flavors that come from this are strictly from the roasting of the oats that brings in that nutty flavor. You need to roast the oats well on low until a beautiful aroma comes in. Be careful not to burn it. 
I don't know how exactly to describe the flavor. You definitely need to try it. It's super delicious 😋

Ingredients :
  • 8-10 Dates deseeded
  • 2 cups Ice cold milk
  • 5 - 6 tbsp oats
  • Date syrup for styling
  • Chocos/nuts for garnishing

Instructions:
  1. Soak the dates in warm milk for 5-10 minutes.


  2. Whilst the dates soak, roast the oats on low until a beautiful aroma comes. Be careful not to burn it.
  3. Next add the deseeded dates and oats along with the soaked milk in a blender and blend well.
  4. Now add the rest of the milk and pulse.
  5. Style your glasses by pouring the dates syrup and immediately pour the smoothie and garnish with nuts or chocos for a crunch!
  6. Your healthy smoothie is ready!

Notes:
  • For extra thickness add in extra roasted oats at the final pulse.
  • Try to use ice cold milk or you may add ice cubes, if so adjust the sweetness accordingly by adding honey or extra dates.
  • Roast the oats well without burning on low flame. That's where the delicious taste comes from.
