Malted Milk Date Shake

This one’s a winner!

Malted Milk Date Shake

A date shake is iconic in the Palm Springs California area.  Whenever I’m in the area or even just passing through I have to stop to get a date shake.  It gets really hot in the dessert and a date shake really hits the spot.  

There’s also an iconic place with date shakes on Pacific Coast Highway in Southern California overlooking the ocean called the “Shake Shack”.  It’s been there since the 1940’s and is now called “Ruby’s Shake Shake”.

Here’s a link to a post from The Harvest Kitchen with background and pictures of the Shake Shack plus another date shake recipe “Shake Shack Date Shake“.

Malted Milk Date Shake

Since I’m a big fan of malted milk in shakes, this version of a date shake has malted milk in it.

There’s only 4 ingredients in this yummy shake, let’s check them out.

Ingredients for Date Shake

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…
