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. Very Nice Milkshake Recipe .Thanks For Sharing

    • welcome sharanya. thanks for this feedback.

  2. 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).

    • thanks for sharing this detailed info.

  3. It will be helpful if you mention the calories for your recipes.

    • i am slowly and gradually adding calories in all the recipes. for some recipes i have already added calories.

  4. Dear Friend
    After blending in mixer for few minutes all these dry fruit mixture i put into wet grinder for 15 minutes,then the mixture become very fine and it rastra very nice.
    You can try.

    • thanks for the suggestion.

  5. Hi there,
    That’s a very energy boosting milkshake.. Can I use this receipe for my 14 month old baby everyday ?

    • if there is no allergy for any of the dry fruits, then you can give it to your toddler. do make sure to grind the dry fruits finely, so that there is no choking. also you can soak all the dry fruits in water, so that they are less heaty. first give a small amount and if no side effects than you can continue giving the milkshake.

  6. Hi,
    Can I store this dry fruit paste in refrigerator and use daily to give it to toddler?
    Any difference in step?
    I am planning to store the paste and then add it in warm milk daily.


    • garima, you can do this way. but then the soaked dry fruits paste turn rancid very fast. so you can keep for about 2 days in the fridge and then use. i would suggest to soak dry fruits like almonds, cashews, pistachios, in water for some hours. then drain all the water and let them dry naturally. then make a powder. refrigerate or freeze. stays good for a about a week. when serving you can heat the milk and add the powder or paste. you can even make just almond powder by blanching and then powder it. blanched is better as it helps in digestion.

  7. Add Oats you will luv it5 stars

    • thanks for the suggestion. will try.

  8. Its a very nice tips of dry fruits..Thanks for the sharing this post

  9. Hiii….super yummy…can I add apple also along with dry fruits for my 5 year old daughter.My daughter refuses to eat breakfast so can she have this drink instead paratha4 stars

    • thanks kavita. avoid using fruits like apples with milk if giving the milkshake everyday. once in a while its fine. mostly fruits do not go well with milk and can cause indigestion issues.

  13. Is it not required to dry roast and soak in water before blending? Can I serve this to my 2 yo?

    • no need to dry roast. you can soak in water. you can serve but just make sure that everything is finely ground.

  14. Hi, I used to soak the above listed nuts the previous night and grind it in the mixi next day. When i add the mixture in the hot milk, it gets spoilt. what should be the reason. is it due to hot milk or Any other reason.

    • do you use dates in the dry fruit mixture. if yes, then the milk is getting curdled due to dates.

    • Same happened with me

      • avoid using dates in hot milk.
