Step-by-step recipe of date milkshake for weight gain especially for kids. Are all kids in the world as choosy as my kids? As moms, we all struggle to feed kids who are ever skeptical to try new flavors and almost always refuse the healthiest foods.
Considering the above fact, I found it obligatory to share a recipe that has been loved by my younger son and is healthy too. My elder son is still skeptical about dates shake but I have fixed him with his favorite chocolate chip biscuit.
First time I made this date milkshake with caramel flavored biscuit (Candi or Lotus biscuit). My son loved this biscuit so I tempted him excitedly. ‘Do you want a biscuit shake?’ And he nodded excitedly with his loveliest smile. So that’s how I made this shake. Dates were never mentioned.
You can use any flavored biscuit or a tablespoon of biscuit spread for this shake. One day, I ran short on caramel biscuit so I tried it with an oreo cookie and it was delicious. At the end of the week, I also tried it with chocolate chip cookies and my elder son loved the chocolate flavors.
The chocolate flavor is also very strong so it completely hides the date flavor. So Oreo, Candi, and chocolate chip biscuits taste good with shake and you can select any of your child's favorite biscuits similar to these. I tried glucose and wheat biscuits too, but they taste OK.
Did I tell you, you don't need sugar for this shake? This shake also helps in gaining weight. Like it won't transform your child but it will add a slightly pinkish hue to cheeks because dates are high in iron and also have some muscle on the bones.
For my son, I felt, it also helped boost his diminished appetite. I gave him this shake almost every day in the evening or night along with a banana shake for breakfast.
How to make it?
These are the ingredients we'll need for this shake, along with ice cubes. You can try this shake with other biscuits too. I've tried this shake successfully with Oreo and chocolate chip cookies.
Remove the seeds of date and crush one biscuit with hand.
Add milk, dates, and two whole biscuits in a food processor and blend. Blend for about two minutes, until smooth. Add ice and mix well.
