Makhana Kheer

Here’s something thats simple enough to make, delicious and nutritous for you! 

Infact it is even helpful in weight loss !  

Makhana (foxnut or lotus seed) is a great source of protein and really high in fibre, hence does a great job in the feeling of fullness.

What this means is that once you’ve had this you’ll be so satisfied that you wont need other desserts or food for long.

Plus the almonds added in are full fibre as well. 

Sweetened with dates, that’s a natural sugar.. good way to avoid your refined white sugar.

Serve it hot or chilled!
