Eating dates with milk is a healthy food that benefits the human body.

Dates – a fruit that come from the date palm tree – contain potassium, magnesium, phosphorous, and zinc, as well as vitamin A, vitamin D, and antioxidants.

Milk also has many properties and is a rich source of calcium and phosphorus. Thus, consuming dates is a great way to replenish these nutrients in the body during fasting.

This fasting month, the combination comes handy especially in preparation of food for sahur.

Dates are particularly beneficial during Ramadan because they are high in sugar and vitamins such as potassium and magnesium as well as an excellent source of fiber and carbohydrates.

When fasting the body can easily develop mild health conditions like low blood sugar, headaches and lethargy.

A Tasty Date Milkshake

A netizen recently shared a delicious date and milk recipe for anyone who wants to try sahur with date milkshake or date milk.
