Date and Banana shake

Have been planning to whip up something for Aarti's "Summer Splash" for a few days now. Actually with the summer coming to an end and it getting really cold with the heavy rains in Mumbai, I guess I am in a slightly different frame of mind. However, this was definitely one that would not like to miss out on.

A banana shake is something that I generally add to my breakfast menu, however, wanted to add a slight twist to it and here it is a date-banana shake. This date banana shake is yet another quick recipe that is done in 2 minutes and you have a tall glass to just relax and enjoy.

Ingredients:
Milk(cold) - 1 glass
Dates -2 (deseeded and chopped finely)
Vanilla Essence - 3 to 4 drops
Banana -1
Sugar - 1/2 tsp (you may even substitute it with honey)

Method: Put all the ingredients into the mixer and whip up a nice frothy date-banana shake in a minute. Enjoy!!!
