Oats Dates Almonds Shake

Tell calcium rich food and everybody will say Milk… Milk and its products are very rich in calcium. Oats is another calcium rich product. Almond is another calcium rich product. Some also say that dates are good source of calcium.. How about a dish with all these added?
That makes the dish calcium rich. This shake is a super hit in my house. Anybody I have shared this recipe with has appreciated and even better, they do it in their kitchen. It will be very filling and is a perfect breakfast. You can make this day ahead and serve chilled. So you have the morning breakfast waiting for you even before you go to bed.. How cool is that? If preferred you could not use honey and add more dates if more sweetness is required. Dry roasting the nuts is optional but it brings a lot of flavor. I got this recipe from here and made some changes.

Method
Dry roast the almonds and oats separately and allow it to cool
In a blender, add chopped dates, oats and almonds and grind until it becomes like wet sand. Now add milk and make it to a shake
You can add honey if you need more sweetness. Sweetness will depend on the dates. Or you could add more mashed dates.
Refrigerate and serve chilled!. You can add some sliced almonds and chocolate powder (both totally optional) on top for garnish
