This thick, creamy shake is a breeze to make. Just be certain that the almond milk is truly ice cold and that the banana is frozen. Peel and halve the banana before freezing.


Directions

Put the dates in a small bowl and sprinkle with the warm water. Let soak for 5 minutes to soften, then drain.

In a blender, combine the dates, almond milk, yogurt, banana, ice cubes and the 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg. Blend until smooth and frothy, about 30 seconds.

Pour into tall, chilled glasses and garnish each with a dusting of nutmeg.
