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 you may like “Shake Shack Date Shake“.

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

Here are more desserts served in a glass you may like “Layered Cherry Cheese Pie in a Glass“, “Chocolate on Chocolate Dessert in a Glass” and “Baileys and Chocolate Cake with Raspberry Dessert“.

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 Dates on Cutting Board

Cut the dates into medium size pieces.

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

Dates in Cup

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

Dates in Blender Jar

Add the dates in the blender.

Malted Milk Powder in Spoon

Then,

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.

Vanilla Ice Cream in Cup

Then,

add the ice cream,

and…

…put the top on the blender.

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

Pour Milkshake in Glass

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

Pour Milkshake in Glass

Pour the milkshake into serving glasses…
