Especially when ramadan falls in summer, we have to drink more fruit juices and water to avoid dehydration. Yes, am with a energy boosting drink recipe today. A tasty healthy crunchy milkshake recipe. This drink recipe or milkshake recipe can satisfy both your hunger and thirst. Especially those who are in diet, this milkshake recipe is the best way to fill you up partially. That means you can have everything in one glass. Here sugar is substituted with dates puree which is best during ramadan. Some kids dislikes to eat dates as its own. This is one of the best ways to add dates in kids meal or desserts. Moreover this is a sugar free milkshake recipe and so  is a healthy treat for kids and adults equally. The roasted almonds and rice flakes adds a special taste and crunchiness to this milkshake recipe. Cornflakes are always kids favorite and so kids will surely enjoy this yummy treat.
