Apple Dates Smoothie

These days I have started the gym again and am also trying my hand at badminton. Praying that either or the other  works out for me and I reduce atleast few kilos. But after a hectic and sweaty workout, I rarely feel like cooking but would be very happy if someone else is there to take care of me. Is my mother listening? or atleast something that could be put together quickly and is healthy and filling. This is a simple yet healthy delight which I have adapted from KurryLeaves ( my namesake with a different spelling) with whom I have been paired with this wednesday for the BlogHop Wednesdays by Radhika. 

Ingredients:
Apple: 1 cubed
Dates: 4-5 deseeded and chopped
Milk: 1-1and 1/4 cup
Sweetner: optional but as per taste

Cinnamon: garnish
Chopped Apples or Dates: Garnish

Preparation:
If your dates are hard and dry,soak them in 3-4 tbsp of milk for about 15 minutes or so. Then blend together all the ingredients to a fine puree /juice adding milk as needed. Adjust the sweetness by going for a healthy sweetner like honey or even more dates puree or maple syrup.

Serve as an intermediate filler for dinner garnish with more chopped apples/dates and sprinkle of cinnamon.


Healthy filling drink. A sweet start at breakfast for a hearty day ahead.You can even make it spicier with the addition of choice of spices and even other dry fruits.
