In Palm Springs and other inland locations in Southern California, supersweet Medjool dates can be seen weighing down palm tree branches for miles, and date-flavored milkshakes are preferred over vanilla and chocolate. We’ve combined ours with chocolate chip ice cream to woo all the date doubters.

This recipe was featured as part of our Milk Shakes photo gallery.

Instructions

Combine 4 to 6 tablespoons milk, 1 pint chocolate chip ice cream, and 1/2 cup coarsely chopped soft Medjool dates in a blender or a food processor fitted with a blade attachment. Pulse 10 to 12 times or until smooth and pourable. Pour into a chilled pint glass, sprinkle with a grating of fresh nutmeg, and serve.
