Dry Fruits Milkshake

Dry Fruits Milkshake is the one which I love to drink in all seasons. It is the best and easy source of energy supplement for all including kids. It also contains essential nutrients.

Few Benefits as per my knowledge:

1) Dates are source of fiber, glucose and fructose and easy digestiable.

2) Figs provides rich iron which keep our body very active.

3) Cashews are used for protecting our body and nervous system.

4) Raisins are used to avoid constipation(My Mom's tip) as it is rich in fibre.

5) Almonds are source of Iron, copper, phosphorus and vitamin B1 and E. It
also has few cancer fighting qualities and strengthen bones and teeth.
