Dates N Oaties Milkshake with Dark Chocolate

by - 11:41 AM

Oh god.....Am I taking my health too serious or am i just trying to compete with friends around and show them that I am more active and fit. Let the reason be anything, I seriously cut down the number of teas that I used to take and replaced them to green teas. But it is sometimes not so tasty and my heart goes on to yummy pizzas and chocolaty puddings. I am fighting and trying to balance those nonchalant heart demands with sturdy mind controlling mechanism. I love juices and milkshakes a lot and love to carry them in my sipper and keep sipping during those days when I totally want to pamper myself. What about those liberal amounts of ice cream, cream and full fat milk? I am dead scared of it. So I found this recipe on Saffola Oats recipe book and I gave a twist by adding Dark chocolate to it which turned out to be very healthy and tasty. It is very filling and that's the best thing about this recipe.

Chef Says:
You can replace dark chocolate with milk chocolate or white chocolate.
Dark chocolate is good for health so I added it to my milkshake.
Instead of dark chocolate, you can use honey.
Increase the number of dates if you are opting out of honey or dark chocolate.
Melting Dark Chocolate is tedious... I agree to that.... So you can use Nutella.

    @ Belesaaru- I can surely agree with you because I find it difficult as well trying to control. But still my mom says I have to cut down n slim down while colleagues say I have perfect body. Sigh
