Apple Pear/Asian Pear Dates Milkshake

       I want to make some healthy and simple recipes likes juices,salads and soups for New U event. Few days back i bought Apple pears/Asian Pears from Brennan's Market. I love to eat this fruit as such. Apple pears are crisp like apple and juicy like pears. For a change simply tried milkshake with apple pear and  Dates. I also added 1/4 tsp vanilla essence and honey to make it more yummy and flavorful. It tasted divine even without a scoop of ice cream, if u didn't tried this combo yet plz do give a try you will love it. Now to the recipe...
Ingredients
  1. Apple Pear/Asian Pear    1 no.(cut in to cubes)
  2. Dates    4-5 pitted
  3. Milk    1 cup cold milk and 1/2 cup (i used low fat milk)
  4. Honey   1/4 tsp or to taste
  5. Vanilla essence   1/4 tsp
Method
  • Take 1/2 cup milk add dates and microwave it for 2 minutes and left it for 15 minutes.(this helps to soften the dates n to cook lightly)
  • Wash and cut apple pear in to bite size pieces and keep ready.
  • Now in blender add cut pieces of apple pear ,boiled dates,vanilla essence and honey blend it until it becomes smooth paste.
  • Then add remaining milk and 1 cup cold milk and blend completely.
  • That's it...Serve with ice cubes or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.I Enjoyed as such, it tasted Delicious!!

Notes:
If u want you can filter it using a strainer and serve it.but i think its not necessary drink with whole nutrition.
Adjust milk according to desired consistency thick/thin.
add honey to taste , above mentioned quantity will give a perfect taste.
