Malted Milk Date Shake

On the weekend when doing my grocery shopping I like to browse through a local store that’s like a farmer’s market to get produce, nuts, grains and whatever else looks good. 

They have so many fresh and natural ingredients, and I especially like that they sell them by the bulk in bins where I can buy just a little bit if I want.

The minute I came across some dates, the first thing I thought of was how delicious the date shakes are out in the Palm Springs, CA area.  It gets so hot in the desert and a date shake really hits the spot.

The second thing I thought of was how delicious malted milk is in shakes.

At that very moment, the dates jumped right into my shopping cart.  All by themselves.

I think they knew that I was going to be making a malted milkshake out of them. 

What a perfect combination of flavors….the malted milk was soooo tasty in the date shake that it’s my new favorite shake flavor now.

You’ll have to give this one a try for sure.  Only 4 ingredients and it’s amazingly delicious.

Let’s check out the ingredients…there’s only 4!

Dates (Medjool are good…I used Deglot Noor), Milk, Malted Milk Powder, and Vanilla Ice Cream.
 

Here’s how to make it.

Cut the dates into medium size pieces. 

Medjool dates are really good for shakes because they’re so sweet.  

I used Deglet Noor dates because that’s what was available in the store….and they were great in this shake.

Add the dates in the blender.

Then,

  

add the malted milk powder.

Next add the milk.  I used fat free milk in this recipe.  If you’re using whole milk or cream, you may need to add a touch more if the shake is too thick.

Then,

add the ice cream,

and….

….put the top on the blender.

Next, blend on the “milkshake” setting if you have one.

If not, try the “chop” or “smoothie” setting so that the mixture is thick but not liquefied.

Pour the milkshake into serving glasses……

……leaving about an inch of space from the top of the glass.

Then add a small scoop of ice cream on top of the shake in each glass for garnish, serve immediately….and

Enjoy!
