Date and Apple Kheer

Kheer has always been a part of the Indian spread. Times have changed, but kheer continues to find a special place in our meal! over time, several variations of kheer have emerged.

Here I present a very healthy version, especially for diabetics a dessert made with apples and dates cooked in low fat milk and sweetened with sugar substitutes.

Dates and apples impart their natural sweetness and fibre, while walnuts add crunch and taste to this kheer. Milk has abundant proteins and calcium,and the goodness of apples and dates, of course, needs no explanation!
