My sister, Jaya, who is currently visiting us, is a great supporter of honey. She always urges me to make some sweet using just honey and no artificial sweetener. I appreciate her idea of using just honey, but never got to make, up until now! I saw this recipe here and remember Jaya's nudges and so here it is..what greater opportunity than this when she is visiting us and gets to tastes the honey flavored kheer!! This is the first time I prepared kher with honey and was a little apprehensive but my fears proved unnecessary as this kheer was just so flavorful that we plan to make it fairly regular (S says whenever the bananas are over ripe this is the one to make!) So this aptly makes its way to Priya Mitharwal and Aipi's 'Bookmarked Event'.

Ingredients - 

Bananas 2 big
Milk 2 cups
Dates 10 (I used fresh dates)
Honey 2 Tbsp or as needed

Method Of Preparation - 

Blend the chopped dates and bananas into a smooth puree.

Boil milk and add the banana-date puree. 

Bring it to a boil and check for the sweetness. Adjust as per need. Add honey if required.

Garnish with chopped dates and honey. Relish this simple and quick dessert upon cooling!

Note - I actually prepared this in the microwave but the stove top method would be just fine!

Preparation Time 10 min 
Makes 3 cups
