Cut the dates into medium size pieces. Medjool dates are really good for shakes because they’re so sweet. Deglet Noor dates also work well.
Add the dates, malted milk powder, milk, and 4 cups of ice cream to the blender.
Next, put the top on the blender, and 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 right away while cold.
