Healthy chocolate milkshake (no added sugar. What!)

Hello everybody!

Okay, story time, I’ve been trying to reduce my sugar intake and of course it’s not very easy, but I’m on day four, so that’s something (woohoo!) . The other night, I wanted to have something sweet and found my brother making date milkshake in the kitchen which consisted of dates and milk. That’s when I came up with a brilliant idea! “What was that?” you ask. Well, I was like, I have dates and milk, I also have unsweetened cocoa and some peanuts. BAM! That could make an amazing milkshake without all that crazy sugar.

Now, there are many different types of dates, but there is this one particular type called “Sukkary” which is distinctly sweet an has a soft flesh. Since these dates have no added sugar and are a good source of fiber, it makes the milkshake a healthier choice as compared to regular milkshakes. Oh and Ramadan is coming up, so you can have this for suhoor because it’s quite filling and you won’t feel sluggish afterwards. Oh and it’s also vegan!SAMSUNG CSC

    […] The best part about this recipe is that you can play around with the amount of ingredients you want to add. If you like almonds, but not coconut, just reduce the amount of coconut or skip it all together! Also, you could use different kinds of dates for this recipe, but I prefer the sukkary kind because of its sweetness. More on what Sukkary dates look like here. […]
