Banana Milk Shake with Figs And Dates

Banana my favourite food in the whole planet. When i was a kid, i used to have a whole banana split for dinner. No starters, no main course. Just dessert and banana split for dessert. This trend continues till today. I am a complete banana freak and i love it in just bout any form. So you can imagine how many kilos of bananas i would have consumed. We used to get so many varieties of bananas in Coimbatore and my favourite was the variety from the hills. I remember my dad exclaiming the next day after i had consumed the whole bunch that he had bought the previous night. "It dint even last a night this time?" and i used to grin sheepishly. Banana love :) The quickest and the healthiest milkshake one can make.

Prep Time: 5 mins

What you need?

Banana 1 large ripe
Vanilla Ice Cream 1/2 cup

In a blender, blend the dates and figs with a little of the milk well.
