Figs and Dates Shake.

1458305076824Hey, It’s Tuesday again… Last week flew away very fast. I am here with Part 3 of my “Beat the Heat” Series. To keep the glazing sun Offshore Try “Figs and Dates Shake”. As a child I never liked to have dried figs but I enjoyed having dates, so my mother tricked me by blending both along with Ice cream and Coco. I use to have it without any complaints. My childhood days are long gone, but I still love it. It is my favourite cold treat for sunny days. It has health benefits with qualities of a Lovely treat. Speaking of health benefits I would like to share a few benefits of figs and dates with you.

  1. Figs are packed with dietary fibres which help to improve digestion.
  2. Figs are low on calories, so if you are watching your weight this is an Ideal snack.
  3. Figs and dates both are high on iron contents it helps to fight against anaemia.
  4. Dates are very healthy to consume in pregnancy.
  5. Dates have high content of Magnesium and potassium that helps to reduce blood pressure.

I hope, while indulging in this one you would not be too guilty. If you are looking for a complete healthy option, avoid Ice cream and use low fat milk. I like to have it for my breakfast. It is filling and tasty way to kick start a day.
