Hlib t'mer (حليب التمر, Date Milk) is an Algerian drink from the Sahara.

Ingredients edit

Procedure edit

  1. Remove the seeds from the dates and check if there are any worms inside them.
  2. Boil the dates with water and sugar for a few minutes until you feel the dates are well-cooked.
  3. Turn off the heat, blend the date mixture, and strain it as well as possible.
  4. Pour the resulting date syrup into your cup of milk.

Notes, tips, and variations edit

  • Any milk could be used for this drink as camel milk isn't easily available; either cow milk or soy milk could work out just fine.
  • Alternatively, you can simmer the dates directly in the milk over low heat until the colour of the milk changes to a nice brown shade before straining.
