Growing up in California you're bound to hear about a date shake at some point. Someone somewhere has had one and they thought it was delightful.

We bought a bag of dates at the farmers' market on Saturday and I had a cup of coconut milk in the fridge waiting. When we got home I blended them up and the baby and I slurped down the whole thing, no problemo.

N.B. Our dates are from Palm Springs and supersoft.

Date Shake
1 cup cold coconut milk
4-5 dates, pitted
Ice (half a tray, at least)

Put everything in your Vita-Mix and blend until smooth. Pour. Share with your favorite baby.
