HEALTHY Dates Recipes [Ramadan Special]
Yummy Dates Milk
Dates are so extremely healthy. They are full of calcium, fiber, magnesium, vitamins and so much more. If you ever have cravings for sweets and you have dates at home, you will be satisfied fast as they taste really sweet and relish-able.
Ramadan without dates is impossible. People who don't touch dates all over the year, will grab for some in Ramadan. There are plenty of recipes made with dates and today I have two really healthy recipes for you to prepare for Iftar or as snack anytime in between.
1st Recipe ➡
Healthy Date Balls made with Nuts
- Grind approx. 18 pitted dates in a mixer till they become creamy. If needed, you can add 2 tbsp of milk. (Don't put too much milk as this leads to get date lumps).
- Empty the mixer and grind approx. 1/4 cup of almonds. (Soaked overnight & peeled).
- Then mix the both ingredients and make small balls
- Grind pistachios and roll the balls into them
- You can use cashew nuts or walnuts as well.
- Wet your hands with water to prevent the dates from sticking to your hands.
2nd Recipe ➡
Healthy Dates Milk
- Grind approx. 10 soft dates in the mixer till creamy. (If needed at 2 tbsp of milk)
- Ones creamy add 2 cups of milk and mix for approx. 1 minute.
- Serve chilled
- This recipe is already sweet enough but if needed more sweetness, you can add little honey.
- As it's summer you may grind a cup of ice cubes into the dates milk as well.
- For both recipes I recommend to use the juicy and soft dates instead of the hard ones. This will make it easier for you to grind it and you will not have any lumps either.
Hope you will try these two extremely healthy date recipes
