I have posted many Milkshakes recipes on the blog like Banana shake, Mango shake, Chickoo milkshake, Strawberry milkshake etc. We enjoy all these milkshakes. But if I have to choose one milkshake which is packed with energy then I would mention this dry fruits milkshake recipe. It is an ideal drink for growing up kids or for people looking for energy drinks.

This dry fruits milkshake is very filling and you might like to skip a meal after having it. i have used soy milk instead of regular milk to make it. You can use regular milk or also make with almond milk.

I have used all the dry fruits like almonds, pistachios, cashews, raisins, dates, dried figs and a pinch of saffron in this milkshake. You can exclude any dry fruit you don’t have or increase as well as decrease the quantity as per your liking.

  1. Just a word of caution here..This drink/shake is very high in protein and calories.. If your intention is to reduce the weight don’t drink too much ..
    Roughly the protein/calory calculation is given below
    Milk one cup has ~150 calories and ~8 gms of protein in it
    10 grams of cashew nuts is got 55 calories and 1.8 gms of protein. 10 grams of almonds may have 60 calories and 2 grams of protein..one medium dry fig has ~45 grams of cal and 0.5 gms of protein, one medium banana may have ~100 cals and 1.3 gms of protein. If you add walnuts ~30 grams, it goes with 40 gms of cals and ~1gram of protein. 50 grams of raisins has 150 calories and 1.5 grams of protein. 4 or 5 dates may have 280 cals and 2 grams of protein..and the list goes on with the other contents you add like oats etc..
    So considering the calories here, this drink may lead to weight gain if you consume it regularly or not doing any workouts.
    Considering the protein richness, this is the best natural protein drink after weight training ( post drink).
