A year or two ago we went to a wedding in Palm Springs. It was one of the hottest days of the year but it was the most gorgeous wedding I’ve ever been to. There was pre-wedding swimming, post-wedding swimming, and our dog running through the reception. Truly epic!
I had my first date shake that weekend, which is one of the things Palm Springs is known well for. Here is my vegan re-creation of that magnificent shake. If you wanted to un-veganize it, it would be easy to just add a scoop or two of premium vanilla ice cream in the place of bananas.
- 4 dates, pitted
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 2 frozen bananas
- 2 Tbsp chopped walnuts
- pinch of cinnamon
- Soak dates in almond milk for at least 30 mins.
- Blend together soaked dates and remaining ingredients until smooth. Enjoy right away!
- My Vitamix is fairly powerful so I don't really need a lot of liquid to blend the frozen bananas, but if you have a different blender and need to add more liquid go for it!
