Date Shake


I made up this recipe when my cousin told me to eat a lot of dates for a fast and easy labor!

I don’t know if it worked but it was so delicious, filling and energizing I decided to make it a breakfast regular. Enjoy!

Date Shake

Serves 2



4-6 dates, pitted

1 large ripe banana

1 tbsp chia seeds (soak with about 1/4c water for a half hour to an hour)

5-10 ice cubes

6oz of skim or almond milk

2 dashes of cinnamon


First add just half the amount of the milk in the blender and then all ingredients. Start to blend and add the milk as you go until you get a creamy smooth consistency. Enjoy! This serves two so i add it to two mason jars and cover one for the next morning.
